A man wanted for stabbing a woman in the neck in the Bronx on Wednesday, killing her, is also suspected of killing a man in the borough about one month ago by stabbing him in the neck, the city police department said.
Police said officers found Bronx resident Wanda Rios, 45, around 1:48 p.m. stabbed inside a private security business on East 233rd St. near Bronxwood Ave. in the Wakefield section of the borough.
She was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Police believe the attacker used a screwdriver, which they said was found at the scene.
The NYPD said it is looking for Idris Abdul-Muhaymin, 45, in connection to the stabbing.
He was described as 6 feet tall, weighing about 180 pounds, last seen wearing glasses and a red cap.
The NYPD said Abdul-Muhaymin is also suspected of killing Owen Dillard on June 11.
Police said the 73-year-old was found with stab wounds to his neck in his apartment on Beekman Ave. near St. Mary's St. in Mott Haven.
The New York Daily News reported that Dillard had recently earned $10,000 from a lotto win.
Police had said no weapons were found at that scene.
No arrests have been made in either fatal stabbing.
