Early Saturday morning two men were making their way home with a pack of beer when they reportedly had a deadly run in with a deranged livery cab driver. The suspect has not been identified.

The organization Hispanics Across America has offered a $5,000 reward for information about a suspect.

At 4:50 a.m. on July 13 police responded to 68th Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Woodside where two men, one 26 and the other 33, were stabbed, one in the chest and one in the torso. Both were rushed to Elmhurst Hospital, police said, where the younger man with the chest wound, Isaac Martinez, was pronounced dead.

His friend is listed in stable conditions.

Police describe the suspect as either Hispanic or Asian, anywhere from 5 feet, 3 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall and from 120 pounds to 170 pounds. He was wearing a nondescript outfit of jeans and a white T-shirt.

He drives a dark-colored sedan with decals on both front quarter panels, police said. He allegedly came after the men with a bat and broke his back window in the process.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS. The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
