NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police on Monday were questioning a man in connection with the brutal knife attack on a Queens teenager last week.
No charges have been filed in the stabbing of 17-year-old Natasha Martinez, CBS 2 reported, but the victim’s family was breathing a little bit easier after hearing about the apparent break in the case.
“You give me the best news,” Wendy Martinez told CBS 2’s Don Champion on Monday.
Natasha Martinez was walking home from work alone around 11 p.m. last Monday when a man came up behind her on 85th Street and stabbed her nearly a dozen times in front of her Woodhaven apartment building, police said.
Authorities initially said they thought the stabbing was random.
