BRONX — A 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death after giving a homeless man $2.

MSN reports that Carl Ducasse, who was about to graduate high school, was stabbed several times in the chest Friday night.

He’d reportedly had just given $2 to a homeless man. His mother, Angela, said that after her son handed over the money, he bent down to pick up a cell phone he’d dropped.

That’s when a second homeless man stabbed him. Angela said the suspect then took her son’s phone as he collapsed on the sidewalk. She claims the stabbing happened because the suspect felt that $2 wasn’t enough.

“The homeless guy wanted more,” she said. “He died because of $2. I can’t believe he’s gone.”

No arrests have yet been made in the stabbing.
