Female jogger stabbed to death one week after getting engaged

Surveillance video released by police of a person of interest in Wendy K. Martinez's Sept. 19 death

Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal stabbing of a recently engaged 35-year-old woman who was jogging near her home Tuesday evening in the Logan Circle neighborhood of D.C., according to our editorial partners at the Washington Post. A news conference is planned at the site of the killing, the 1400 block of 11th Street NW.

It was a picture-perfect night to be outdoors, with temperatures in the 70s and clear skies. She called her a vibrant, lovely young woman who was in the midst of the "most handsome moment of her life" before she was killed.

Police don't believe Martinez knew her attacker.

Authorities said they received tips from the community after a surveillance image was released to help identify the suspect. Security cameras from inside the Chinese American eatery shows the Georgetown University alumnae bleeding from her neck before collapsing on the ground.

She was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The suspect was described as a black man wearing a mustard-colored shirt and dark sweatpants, and he fled southbound on 11th Street, according to police. You can see a picture and a video of him below.

Anthony Crawford has been charged with first degree murder for what police believe was a random knife attack on Tuesday night around 20:00 (01:00GMT).

Her family said that she and her boyfriend got engaged just one week prior to her death.

"Wendy's murder has been devastating to her family and friends, people in this neighborhood and certainty damaging to all of our senses of safety", Bowser said.

So heartbreaking! Washington DC tech exec Wendy Martinez was brutally stabbed to death on her nightly jog by a stranger. Not only was she an avid runner, but she was a devout Christian, a wonderful friend, and a driven professional.

"You never know what can happen because this was a random act of violence", said Francisca Cativa, who was walking her daughter to school. She was also excited to be planning her upcoming wedding to her fiancé Daniel Hincapie.

Police chief Peter Newsham said, "You have an incident like this - it's very scary". Martinez said in a recent interview with thebridgework.com that she liked to unwind from work by running around the city or working out at her favorite local studio.

Newsham said they will be taking a look at his criminal past or if he has a history of mental illness.

The motive of the stabbing has not been determined.

She was attacked near her apartment building in an area that Newsham described as a "very safe neighborhood".

Prior to the arrest, MPD had offered up to $25,000 to anyone with information that could help find the suspect, who was captured on video.
