Armless man charged with stabbing tourist in Miami

Florida man with no arms charged with stabbing tourist

Crenshaw told officers he clutched the scissors with his feet and stabbed Coronado twice.

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, is known locally for the detailed works of art he creates using his feet, the same extremities police say he used to jam a pair of scissors into 22-year-old Cesar Coronado.

Police found Crenshaw nearby after he was described to officers as a homeless man without arms.

In a weird incident, a 46-year-old homeless was arrested for stabbing a tourist with a pair of scissors using his feet.


Crenshaw told police he was lying down when Cesar Coronado, 22, punched him in the head, according to an arrest report.

The publication has profiled Crenshaw in the past and found he has had multiple run-ins with police and other officials, including violent crime charges. "I came for a vacation", Coronado told the Miami NBC station."I just said, 'do you know where this is?' but as soon as I talked, the only thing he reacted was - he just cut me". He said he then pulled out a pair of scissors with his feet and stabbed the victim before putting the scissors in his waistband and leaving the area, authorities said. Police arrested him in the 200 block of Lincoln Road.

Jonathan Crenshaw was often seen on the streets of South Beach painting canvas with his brush between his toes.

"Why would I go and attack someone else?" Paramedics transported him to the Mount Sinai Medical Center for treatment.
