DAILYKENN.com -- 67-year-old Paul Behler was fatally stabbed at a bus stop in Baltimore, Maryland.
Reports say the elderly Behler was homeless.
He needed a helping hand, not a knife in the back.
The motive for the attack was robbery, reports say.
Two males have been charged, arrested, and taken into custody: Brelan Handy, 27, of Glen Burnie, and Kenneth Smith, 61.
The incident was captured by a security video camera.

Baltimore Police said around 1:45 a.m. Sunday, a 67-year-old man was sitting on a bus stop in the 300 block of West Saratoga Street when he was approached by two unknown men. The two suspects stabbed and robbed the victim and then fled on foot, police said.
Behler's last known address was a homeless shelter in the 400 block of Fallsway.
The incident was caught on closed-circuit cameras and the descriptions of the suspects were immediately put out via police radio, officials said.
"It's horrible times 10," Detective Donny Moses said.
"It showed our two suspects approaching him, robbing him and running," Moses said.
"We stopped them without incident. Both suspects had blood on their clothes. One suspect, a 61-year-old man, had the murder weapon in his pocket. The knife contained blood on it as well," Moses said.
"This victim, he looked to be vulnerable -- 67, alone. They took advantage of him and, prayerfully, justice will be served," Moses said.
A person who knew the victim told 11 News that the man was a nice person who was frequently seen in the area and didn't bother anyone.
