The police have released the name of a man who was stabbed to death in Woodside during the early hours Monday morning.

Freddy Jimenez, 55, of 71st Street in Woodside, was fatally stabbed in the stomach at around 2:45 a.m. on the corner of 69th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, according to police.

The police responded to a 911 and discovered Jimenez with stab wounds. He was transported by EMS to NYC Health & Hospitals/Queens where he was pronounced dead.

Police are still trying to piece together the circumstances surrounding Jimenez’s death. However, NYPD sources say the pair had been drinking together prior to the stabbing and were both intoxicated.

It isn’t clear where the pair had been drinking before the attack nor what prompted it.

The suspect fled the scene after the stabbing and has not been caught, the NYPD said.

Anyone with information pertaining to the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA).
