'Tin Man' Stabbing: Wizard Of Oz Character Stabs Man In Times Square

This Tin Man needs a heart, and a lawyer.

Yesterday, Gerald Brown, who was painted to look like the Wizard of Oz character, stabbed a man with a screwdriver, according to police and witnesses.

The street performer got into an argument with a CitySights employee and their heated words escalated to violence.

According to the Daily News:

"It was a scuffle going back and forth on the ground," said Eric Jones, 24, a store manager who watched the attack. "The silver guy got up and took off."

The stabbing was the result of a turf war. Cops say Brown regularly picks fights with other performers, including a guy dressed as Spider-Man.
