A homeless man has been charged with stabbing a stranger to death and wounding her friend because they were too close to the tent he was living in on a Brooklyn street, police said Monday.

Damari Bowles allegedly stabbed pharmacy technician Lizseh Casserly, 32, in the chest and neck on Nov. 27. He also attacked her friend, Carlos Figueroa, 40, knifing him in the back, police said.

Bowles, 28, is charged with murder and weapon possession.

“She was trying to save me,” Figueroa, 40, told the Daily News days after the attack. “We were trying to save each other.”
