MIAMI (AP) - A homeless South Florida man with no arms has been charged with stabbing a Chicago tourist.
Miami Beach police say 46-year-old Jonathan Crenshaw held a pair of scissors with his feet and stabbed 22-year-old Cesar Coronado just after midnight early Tuesday.

He was taken to the hospital. Crenshaw has been charged with aggravated battery.
