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

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 say Crenshaw stabbed Coronado twice and fled the scene.

A homeless Miami man with no arms has been charged after allegedly stabbing a tourist, authorities announced Wednesday.

Neither men dispute that Coronado was stabbed, but Crenshaw said he was attacked first, according to the arrest report.

A friend of Coronado's, however, said the two asked Crenshaw for directions when he suddenly stabbed Coronado in the arm.

According to the arrest report, Crenshaw says he was lying down when Coronado approached him and punched him in the head. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

After the attack, Crenshaw is alleged to have put the scissors back into his waistband and quickly left the area.

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.

Barrientos described the attacker to police as a homeless, armless man. Officers found Crenshaw a short distance away and arrested him. He has a court date set for July 18.
