28-Year-Old Woman Murdered in Astoria Apartment: NYPD

Sept. 9, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

A 28-year-old woman who was found dead inside an Astoria apartment building last week was murdered, according to the police.

Dhuha Sabaa was discovered inside a second-floor apartment above a Dominos Pizzeria at 25-55 Steinway St. at about 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5, according to the police.

Sabaa was found unresponsive on the apartment floor by first responders reporting to a 911 call for a foul odor at the location. She had lacerations to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

There were no signs of forced entry at the one-room apartment.

The NYPD has now classified the incident as a homicide and an investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

“…found unresponsive on the apartment floor by first responders reporting to a 911 call for a foul odor at the location.” Are we sure that wasn’t from the Domino’s on the ground floor? Their pizza STINKS!

Sucks but...

This doesn’t surprise me one bit. With all the shootings and violence in that one area, a story like this was bound to happen sooner or later.

Astoria is a GREAT place to live. It is the people who come here doing all of this. There are murders all over the city, not just Astoria. Please do not write this crap.

This is so close to where i live. I should of stayed in LIC. I came here for the cheaper rent but it was a big mistake. It’s been one crime or assault after another all summer long. This just adds to the sense of fear and uncertainty in Astoria.

What sense of fear and uncertainty?!?! I’ve lived here for 4 years (including 2 when Aces was still in business right down the street from me) and I’ve never felt overly fearful. I’d even go as far as to say the UES felt sketchier when I lived there than Astoria does. Haters gonna hate, I suppose.

Fear and uncertainty? What are you snoring? The neighborhoods never been safer. Go back to where you originally came from.

Astoria is no longer a place where people would want to live for a long time. Short term expensive rentals and night life with a false sense of security is where its at now.
