Man With No Arms Accused of Stabbing Tourist With Scissors in Florida

13 July 2018

Crenshaw used his feet to grab a pair of scissors and struck Coronado twice before walking away, police said.

Crenshaw is an artist who paints with his feet and his artistic skills are a popular tourist draw on Miami Beach, according to the Miami Herald.

Jonathan Crenshaw was arrested and charged with aggravated battery by Miami Beach police on July 10, 2018.

A 46-year-old homeless man with no arms was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida, for stabbing another man with a pair of scissors using his feet, police said on Wednesday.

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, allegedly knifed the man on Miami's South Beach Tuesday, with his victim claiming the attack happened after a visitor from Chicago asked for directions.

The US Embassy in London has issued a warning to Americans in Britain to keep a "low profile" during Donald Trump's visit. The state visit has never actually materialized, partly due to fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain.

Police said Crenshaw spontaneously told an officer that he was defending himself. He was taken to a local hospital after officers found him lying on the floor.

According to the Miami New Times, Coronado told police that he was attacked while out for a walk with a female friend, shortly after asking Crenshaw for help.

Crenshaw's arrest record dates to 2008 and lists arrests for disorderly intoxication, vandalism, and battery on police officers, firefighters and city code inspectors.

It's believed he was born in Alabama, but it's not known whether he was born without arms or lost them later in life.
