Michael Joseph Fobbs, 21, was arrested for allegedly beating a man to death CBS affiliate KENS

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Police arrested a man they say beat another man to death at the San Antonio Amtrak station in front of a crowd on Thursday, CBS affiliate KENS reports.

Michael Joseph Fobbs, 21, was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Authorities said the victim, a 56-year old Texas man, was sitting alone on a bench waiting to board a bus when Fobbs approached and began beating him, KENS says.

According to the station, officers said Fobbs took time during the beating to say, "I feel like killing someone," before continuing the beating until the victim was dead.

Police said security guards in the station made their way to the scene, but it was too late.

The victim's name has not been released, because the medical examiner's office has been unable to notify his family, according to KENS.

Fobbs is being held on $150,000 bond.
