Stabbing Over Panhandling
Pittsburgh police say one homeless man was stabbed by another after they argued over who was the better panhandler. Police haven't identified the victim, who was treated at a Pittsburgh hospital for minor wounds. Forty-six-year-old Larry Milburn remains in custody on aggravated assault and other charges. The men started arguing Thursday afternoon in an area where homeless people are known to encamp. Police say Milburn cut the other man in the neck using kitchen shears. Police say the men were arguing about which of them was the best panhandler on the city's North Side, a neighborhood that houses the city's pro sports stadiums.
