A Florida man has been accused of slashing his arm and defacing a Holocaust memorial with his own blood in Miami Beach.
Christopher Green, 44, was seen by several witnesses digging into his left forearm until it bled before smearing the blood all over the wall of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation Holocaust Memorial on Tuesday, according to a police report from Local10.
Green, who is homeless, “written numerous letters of the alphabet on his blood. The letters he wrote contained nothing legible,” the police wrote.
He was arrested Thursday when he was spotted by Miami police. He is accused of criminal mischief at a church.
The memorial opened in 1984 after a group of Holocaust survivors banded together to build a permanent memorial in the city, according to the memorials website.
Green appeared in court Friday where he was ordered to stay away from the memorial and the memorial area. He is being held on a $5,000 bond, Local10 reported.
