A 25-year-old man was fatally stabbed in front of a Roosevelt Avenue restaurant in Corona early Saturday, the NYPD said,

Furman Herrera-Martinez of Corona was found with stab wounds to his check and arm near Seba-Seba, at 96-06 Roosevelt Ave., just before 6 a.m., police said.

Herrera-Martinez was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead, and there were no arrests made as of Saturday morning, the NYPD said.

Police said Herrera-Martinez lived less than four blocks from where he stabbed.

Raymond Pinera, the manager of El Hornero Bakery, which is across the street from Seba-Seba, said he arrived at the shop later in the morning and the entire street was blocked off.

“It’s terrible,” he said, “killed for nothing.”
