Police have released a sketch of a man they want to question in connection with the death of Queens man back in June.

Investigators say they hope he can shed some light on what led to the death of Roberto Martires.

They say the 56-year-old was the victim of a random assault.

In the early morning of June 21, police say Martires was punched in the face while walking down the street in Woodside.

Witnesses say the man walked up to Martires, asked if he was Filipino, then punched him.

He suffered severe head trauma and later died.

The man in the sketch is described as between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall, and approximately 30 years old.

He was last seen wearing a t-shirt, blue jeans, and a dark baseball cap.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
