Homeless man with no arms arrested for stabbing tourist

The man claims he has 200 children and fathered the first one when he was 8

Coronado, 22, told cops he was walking with a female friend when Crenshaw jumped and attacked him after he simply asked for directions.

Punch

But the armless artist claimed Coronado approached him and punched him in the head, and he retaliated by stabbing Coronado twice and walking away.

Officers found Coronado found bleeding from his left arm and he was treated at a hospital. Crenshaw, 46, faces a felony battery charge and is being held in police custody.

Crenshaw has attracted tourists and local media for years with the paintings he creates and sells on the streets. He's also had regular run-ins with the law.

Trespass

Court records show his criminal history dates to 2006 and includes charges for disorderly conduct, resisting officers and trespassing.

He has also faced four previous battery charges, including a conviction in 2014 for felony battery of an officer, which led to a sentence of 180 days in jail. Court filings noted that Crenshaw's fingerprints couldn't be collected because he has no arms.

In a 2011 profile in the Miami New Times, Crenshaw would not discuss the condition that left him without upper limbs.

200 children

He made wild and unverified claims about his past, saying that he had more than 200 children and fathered the first one when he was 8.

"Sometimes I wish I were dead," he told the New Times. "I'm not trying to kill myself or anything. But then I wouldn't have to suffer."
