    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A 34-year-old man in a wheelchair was arrested Tuesday after attacking and attempting to rob a man who had tried to help him, police said.

    The would-be Good Samaritan came across the man in a wheelchair with two flat tires in front of his house in the centre of Amsterdam. He invited the wheelchair-bound man inside for a cup of coffee, whereupon the man grabbed his host and demanded money, police said.

    When the host refused, the wheelchair-bound man stabbed him with a knife.

    "The two fell to the floor wrestling," said police spokesman Leo Dortland. Neighbours heard the struggle and alerted police, who arrived while the pair were still grappling.

    Dortland said a strange detail was that the man who was attacked had also spent years in a wheelchair before being fitted with prosthetic legs.

    "They were total strangers. It's a bizarre case,"
