Woodhaven Stabbing May Have Been Gang-Related, Cops Say
QUEENS — The stabbing of a teenage girl who was slashed 11 times steps from her Woodhaven home earlier this week may have been gang-related, police said Friday.
Police wouldn't elaborate on what they meant by gang-related, but the Daily News said that Martinez may have had a spat with a gang member.
NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday that the hoodie-wearing man who attacked Martinez may have also been responsible for another unprovoked Queens stabbing that critically injured a 36-year old home health aid from Queens Village in June.
It was not clear if there was a connection between the crimes.
