July 12 Armless Florida man charged after allegedly using feet to stab tourist with scissors

His name is Jonathan Crenshaw.

He is a frequent visitor to the Lincoln Road Mall in Miami’s South Beach area. He has no arms – it is not clear why – and was seen painting with his feet, according to the Miami Herald.

But on Tuesday he was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, according to the Miami-Dade Corrections.

Statement? That he stabbed the tourist with the scissors he held at his feet.

The incident in question took place on Monday when 22-year-old Chicago resident Cesar Coronado and his girlfriend stopped in the South Beach area to ask Crenshaw for directions, according to the Miami New Times.

Crenshaw then allegedly pulled out a pair of scissors, hit Coronado and then left the scene.

Coronado was found to have blood from his left hand; Crenshaw was arrested the next day and told the officer that the stab was in self-defense, according to the Herald.

Crenshaw is set to trial on July 18; his bond was set at $ 7,500.
