According to a Reuters report, he was subsequently detained near the attack site in a shopping and tourist area around the South Beach and charged with one count of aggravated battery, a second-degree felony. "I came for a vacation", Coronado told the Miami NBC station."I just said, 'do you know where this is?' but as soon as I talked, the only thing he reacted was - he just cut me".

Neither men dispute that Coronado was stabbed, but Crenshaw said he was attacked first, according to the arrest report.

Coronado was bleeding from his left arm when he was admitted to a local hospital, Reuters reports.

Mr Coronado told investigators he had stopped to ask Crenshaw for directions before he jumped up and stabbed him.
