She stumbled away from the person and into a nearby takeout restaurant, where surveillance video showed Martinez appearing to alert customers to her attacker's location.

The description is based on a grainy surveillance video from the Chinese restaurant's security camera. The suspect ran out of the restaurant heading southbound on 11th Street.

The young executive got engaged just last week to her fiance Daniel Hincapie.

Fox 5 DC reported that the knife used in the stabbing has been recovered at the scene. Martinez, chief of staff at government affairs company FiscalNote, was an avid runner who regularly spent her evenings jogging around the city.

Chief Newsham said police are searching for a black male wearing a mustard-coloured shirt, dark sweat trousers rolled up to his ankle and white sandals with white socks.

"It is more likely a random act than anything else, but we're going to look at all possibilities", Police Chief Peter Newsham said during a Wednesday news conference, adding patrons at the restaurant "did the best they could" to save Martinez's life.
