Pittsburgh police say one homeless man was stabbed by another after they argued over who was the better panhandler.

Police are not identifying the victim, who was taken to Allegheny General Hospital with minor wounds. Forty-six-year-old Larry Milburn remains in custody awaiting arraignment on aggravated assault and other charges.

The men began arguing in an area where homeless people are known to encamp about 4:15 p.m. yesterday. That's when police say Mr. 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 contains the city's pro sports stadiums.
