Police released a photo of suspect in March 2, 2015 stabbing.

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police released the identity and a photo of the man they say is responsible for stabbing a woman multiple times Tuesday.  

An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for 57-year-old Angel Miranda-Sainz.

The stabbing occurred March 3 at 7 a.m. at a downtown apartment complex on North 21st Street near Eastern Avenue and Fremont Street. The woman, whose identity hasn't been released, was transported to University Medical Center.

Police said Miranda-Sainz fled the scene in a Mercury Marquis. 

A nearby patrol officer saw the vehicle near Sunrise Avenue and 23rd Street and attempted to stop Miranda-Sainz, but was unsuccessful.

Officers followed the suspect into the area of Boulder Highway between Lamb Boulevard and U.S. 95 causing Boulder Highway to be closed for a few hours. That's where law enforcement attempted to stop Miranda-Sainz's vehicle with a PIT maneuver, but it failed.

Miranda-Sainz is facing charges of attempted murder, battery and evading a police officer.

Miranda-Sainz is described as a Hispanic man, 5-foot-4 tall and weighing around 140 pounds. He was last seen driving a white 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis with Nevada license plate 591-XZY.

Anyone with information on Miranda-Sainz is asked to call Metro Police at (702)828-8452. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702)385-5555, or on the Internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
