A woman found slain last Thursday in her Steinway Street apartment was the victim of a homicide, the NYPD announced Monday.

The victim, Dhuha Sabaa, 28, was discovered on the second floor of 25-55 Steinway in Astoria, above a fast-food establishment on the commercial and residential strip. Police responded to the location at about 1:20 p.m. after someone called 911 to report a foul odor coming from the one-room apartment where the victim lived and was found.

Sabaa was lying on the floor with lacerations to her chest, police said, reporting that there were no signs of forced entry. They said the investigation into her death is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the killing may call the 114th Precinct at (718) 626-9311 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1 (888) 57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
