Nassau County police released a photo of a man they said is a suspect who is wanted for the attempted murder of a stabbing victim in Hempstead six months ago, authorities said.

The suspect, Jose or Luis Alberto Sorto, allegedly stabbed the victim several times on Washington Street near the corner of Vancott Avenue at 6:40 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, police said Tuesday.

Third Squad detectives released the photo of the suspect—who’s last known address was on Hendrickson Avenue in Hempstead—in the hopes that someone would recognize him and turn him in.

Police said that another suspect has already been arrested in connection with the stabbing, but did not release the alleged codefendant’s identity.

Crime Stoppers is asking anyone who has any information about the whereabouts of Jose or Luis Alberto Sorto, or anyone with any information about this case to call their toll free hotline: 1-800-244-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain confidential.
