    [NY] Man Stabbed to Death in Queens

    A 58-year-old man has been stabbed to death in the St. Albans section of Queens.

    Neighbors say they found the crime extremely unexpected given how quiet the neighborhood is.

    After the murder, next door neighbor Hakeem was surprised to find that the wire to his backyard surveillance camera had been cut. His assumption is that the killer was responsible.

    The investigation is ongoing as police examine that surveillance system and continue to search for the attacker.

    The suspect was last seen leaving the area dressed mostly in black with a purple hat and latex gloves.
