Woman Stabbed to Death After Giving Money to Panhandler

A Maryland woman was fatally stabbed over the weekend after rolling her car window down to hand money to a person who was said to be homeless. Jacquelyn Smith, 52, was in a car with her family as they traveled through Baltimore on Saturday night.

A woman wearing a brown jacket that appeared to be carrying a child and a sign that read “Please Help me feed my baby” reportedly approached the vehicle. Smith rolled down her window and handed the woman money.  “And that’s when an unknown man approached the vehicle, stabbed the woman, and then left the location,” Jeremy Silbert, with the Baltimore Police Department, told CBS Baltimore.

The man attempted to grab Smith’s wallet before pulling out a knife and stabbing her in her chest. The man fled the scene with the woman carrying the sign.
