Homeless Florida man with no arms accused of stabbing tourist with scissors

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, used his feet to hold scissors and stabbed Cesar Coronado, 22, Miami Beach police said Wednesday.

But Tuesday, the 46-year-old transient artist was arrested and accused of stabbing a Miami tourist with a pair of scissors. Coronado and a friend denied Coronado hit Crenshaw and told officers they were only asking for directions when the homeless man jumped up and stabbed Coronado.

Crenshaw told police he was lying down when Cesar Coronado, 22, punched him in the head, according to an arrest report. He then stuck the scissors in his waistband and walked away quickly, according to the police report. Paramedics took him to an area hospital for treatment.

Crenshaw, a local fixture known for painting colorful works of art with his feet, according to local media reports, was subsequently detained near the attack in a shopping and tourist area near South Beach and charged with one count of aggravated battery, a second-degree felony, police said. His court date is scheduled for July 18.
