TimesLedger Newspapers

Police released surveillance video late Saturday of a vehicle believed to have been driven by a suspect in a fatal stabbing in Woodside hours earlier.

The car was a dark-colored, older model car with decals on both front quarter panels and possibly had a shattered rear window, the NYPD said.

Authorities also described the man behind the wheel, who is suspected of stabbing 26-year-old Isaac Martinez of Astoria to death, as either Asian or Hispanic with dark hair, between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-8 and in the range of 120 to 170 pounds. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans early Saturday morning, when Martinez and a 33-year-old man were stabbed at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 68th Street, police said. The other stabbing victim was listed in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital Saturday, according to the NYPD.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
