Police hunt for Chinatown murder suspect

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Police have publicly identified a suspect in the fatal stabbing of a man in Chinatown on Monday.

Cops are asking for the public’s help in tracking down Shen Bin Weng, 55, who is wanted in connection with the homicide at a social club at 125 Division St. The New York Post called the spot a “gambling den.”

Hipsters have dubbed this area Dimes Square.

The victim Qi Rui Weng (no relation), 58, of Queens was stabbed in the torso sometime before 4:30 p.m. on April 4 and pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital.

Police released photos and video of the suspect. The photos show him nearby before the stabbing occurred.

The first video clip shows him inside of San Jiang Trading, a kitchen supply store at 136 East Broadway, shortly before the incident. The second video clip shows him walking south on Pike Street shortly after the incident.

Police did not release an address for the suspect.

Police ask that anyone with information call the N.Y.P.D.’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter at @NYPDTips. All tips are strictly confidential.

    Better question: Tell us how these private clubs operate and what we need to get one, too! Nevermind this small Chinese one under the old Pattern/Gin Lane office… More interesting the Italian Mafia hangout and lore on Market St & Cherry, under the Knickerbocker….

    Please catch this murder suspect and lock him up. Criminals are all over Chinatown and they must be jailed. The downtown jail would be a perfect place for these kinds of people. Build the new megajail to house megacriminals like this one. I am all for the new proposed jail. It’s needed!

        Out of curiosity, do you support or oppose bail reform (reducing or eliminating cash bail so fewer people are jailed pending trial)?
