Two people have been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a Queens woman.
Police say Huang Chen, 47, followed Qian Wu, 46, to her apartment building on 40th Road in Flushing Tuesday night where he viciously stabbed her to death.
Investigators say after the murder, Chen went to a hospital with cuts to his leg and hand. The hospital then contacted police who arrested him after a brief round of questioning.
Police say Chen had been verbally harassing and threatening Wu, who ran an employment agency for years.
"The individual apparently went to the employment agency in 2006 looking for a job, and never received a job. He began harassing this woman starting in 2006. In fact, he was arrested for assaulting her in 2006. Since that time, there have been nine orders of protection," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
Police also arrested Wu's landlord, Wenxin Zhang, 54, on charges of tampering with evidence.
Investigators say surveillance footage recovered from the building shows Zhang wiping up blood with her feet before following Chen outside with a bag in her hand.
The bag, which allegedly contained bloody clothes, a hammer and knife, was recovered by police inside a trash can at a nearby park.
"It's quite shocking. I mean, particularly in this neighborhood. It's pretty safe," said one Flushing resident.
Chen is charged with second-degree murder, first-degree stalking, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and tampering with physical evidence.
If convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
