Jonathan Crenshaw is one of those South Beach characters you can’t help but notice.
For years, the 46-year-old homeless man, who weighs all of 90 pounds, has painted on canvas on Lincoln Road Mall, drawing the attention of tourists and passersby for his artistic skills.
That Crenshaw is armless and paints using his feet probably has much to do with the attention he gets.
But on Tuesday, just after midnight, Miami Beach police say that Crenshaw stabbed one of those tourists. Crenshaw, police say, used a pair of scissors he clutched with his feet to stab Cesar Coronado, 22, who was visiting Miami Beach from Chicago.
