Armless Miami man charged with stabbing Chicago tourist

13 July 2018

Miami Beach police arrested 46-year-old Jonathan Crenshaw Tuesday and charged him with aggravated battery.

It noted that Crenshaw is a popular fixture in the area and is known for painting canvases along a trendy spot in the neighbourhood of South Beach in the city of Miami Beach.

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

The 46-year-old armless man was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida.

The friend said they approached Crenshaw near the intersection of Collins Avenue and 16th Street and asked for directions, when he suddenly jumped up and stabbed Coronado in his arm.

Police said Crenshaw spontaneously told an officer that he was defending himself.

Crenshaw allegedly said he used his feet to grab a pair of scissors from his suitcase and stabbed Coronado twice.

Police found the victim on the ground, bleeding out of his left arm, and took him to a local medical center.

His arrest record includes offences dating back to 2008 for trespassing, disorderly intoxication, vandalism and battery on police officers among others.

Crenshaw has remained tight-lipped on why he has no arms, but claimed to one reporter that his mother had fed him rat poison as a child.

Crenshaw has a court date on July 18; his bond has been set at $7,500.
