The 18-year-old man suspected in the random stabbing death of a beloved Brooklyn social-justice activist was arrested on Thursday – as cops raiding his apartment found a knife and a sweatshirt matching the one the attacker wore, police and sources said. NY Post Senior reporter Joe Marino and reporter Amanda Woods share this story.

Brian Dowling was pictured with tears running down his face – and cuffs around his wrists and ankles – as officers escorted him from the NYPD’s 81st Precinct in Bedford–Stuyvesant after charging him with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

The accused killer was wearing the same white T-shirt and striped shorts as when cops busted him at his home on Lafayette Avenue near Malcolm X Boulevard — just down the block from where Ryan Carson, 32, was knifed to death early Monday as his girlfriend watched.

More than a dozen officers descended on the property, searching for clothing allegedly worn by the suspect during the caught-on-camera attack.

Cops found both Dowling and the dark “Champion” sweatshirt believed to have been worn by the killer in the video of the attack, the sources said.
