Miami Beach police arrested 46-year-old Jonathan Crenshaw Tuesday and charged him with aggravated battery.

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.

Both Coronado and his friend, 22-year-old Cindy Barrientos, told investigators that they were just asking for directions when Crenshaw suddenly stabbed Coronado and walked off.

While in police custody, Crenshaw claimed he was defending himself after Coronado punched him in the head. He said he then pulled out a pair of scissors with his feet and stabbed the victim before putting the scissors in his waistband and leaving the area, authorities said. Police said Crenshaw stabbed Coronado twice before fleeing the scene.

Crenshaw was booked for battery charges on Tuesday night and his bond was set at $7,500, according to Miami-Dade Corrections.
