A homeless man is hospitalized after he is stabbed by another man who was handing out food. 

The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. Monday on Pine Street in downtown Atlanta. A man from a local church who is known to hand out food to the homeless had just finished giving out items when a homeless man became angry according to Atlanta police.

An argument erupted and that is when the homeless man attempted to take the other man's cell phone. The man pulled a knife and stabbed the homeless man in what police described as self-defense.
