Coronado, who was visiting Miami from Chicago, told the police that he and his girlfriend were simply asking for directions when Crenshaw attacked, the Associated Press reported. Jonathan Crenshaw apparently got into a dispute with a 22-year-old and stabbed him with twice with scissors.
Crenshaw has been charged with aggravated battery. An ambulance and police arrived to make an arrest nearby.
Crenshaw claimed he acted in self-defence after Coronado punched him in the head, the report said. That's when Crenshaw allegedly stabbed Coronado in the arm before fleeing.
Interestingly, Crenshaw is known for painting colourful artworks using his feet, said a local news report.

All of members of the team were successfully rescued from the cave on Tuesday after being trapped there for 18 days. They expected to be in the cave for only an hour when high water was suddenly upon them.
But a female friend who was traveling with Coronado told a different story.
A homeless man from Florida with no arms reportedly stabbed a tourist, and is not in prison.
Coronado was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries.
Along with multiple charges of battering police, Crenshaw's record also includes trespassing and disorderly intoxication arrests. He was given a $7,500 bond, and he'll be in court on July 18.
