Detectives need the public’s help in tracking down a Woodside man who allegedly knifed his former girlfriend inside an apartment early on Sunday morning.
Law enforcement sources said that Marco Antonio Baez, 32, allegedly got into a dispute with his former 29-year-old companion inside an apartment on 65th Place near 50th Avenue at about 5:20 a.m. on March 11.
The spat turned violent, police said, when Baez allegedly stabbed the woman in the abdomen; he then fled the location.
Officers from the 108th Precinct and EMS units responded to a 911 call about the scene. Paramedics brought the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was treated for a puncture wound to her abdomen and a lacerated spleen, authorities said.
Police sources said that Baez has nine prior arrests dating back to 2015, including on charges of criminal contempt, grand larceny and robbery.
According to a wanted flier posted on the 108th Precinct’s Twitter account, Baez stands 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has black hair. He is known to frequent the confines of the 108th, 110th and 115th precincts, which spans an area stretching from Long Island City to Corona.
Anyone with information regarding Baez’s whereabouts can call the 108th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-784-5441; all calls are kept confidential.
