Bayview police say a roommate from hell attacked his landlady with a kitchen knife after she offered him food Sunday.

Cops responded to the area of Mansell and Hamilton streets about 10 p.m. and arrested the deranged man, police said Wednesday.

A 51-year-old woman said she rents a room to a 65-year-old man who “had been acting strangely for the last few days,” police said.

The woman said she offered the man food and he became enraged, running into the kitchen and throwing things around. She asked him what was wrong, and he turned toward her while holding a large kitchen knife, lunged and threatened to kill her.

The suspect “narrowly missed stabbing her in the stomach before running from the house,” police said.

He was booked on suspicion of assault and threats, and an outstanding warrant.
