His name is Jonathan Crenshaw.

He’s a fixture on the Lincoln Road Mall in Miami’s South Beach area. He doesn’t have any arms — it’s not clear why — and he’s been seen painting pictures with his feet, the Miami Herald reported.

The allegation? That he stabbed a tourist with scissors he held in his feet.

The incident in question unfolded on Monday when Chicago resident Cesar Coronado, 22, and a female friend stopped in the South Beach area to ask Crenshaw for directions, the Miami New Times reported.

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

Coronado was found bleeding from his left arm; Crenshaw was arrested the following day and he told an officer that the stabbing happened in self-defence, the Herald reported.

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