Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal’s son, Redmond O’Neal, has been charged with attempted murder and assault after he severely injured two people during a string of attacks in Los Angeles in May.
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific Area began investigating a violent robbery spree in early May that took place in the Venice Beach and Palms areas, where five men were attacked in unprovoked confrontations by a white, male suspect with red hair and tattoos. Two of the victims were seriously injured.
O’Neal, 33, the only son of the late Charlie’s Angels star who died in 2009, was arrested on May 8 after he was identified as the suspect in an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven. After his arrest, evidence and witnesses linked O’Neal to the violent crime spree, which came to a halt soon after he was taken into police custody.
According to a press release from the LAPD, detectives from the Pacific Area presented their findings to the District Attorney’s Office on Friday, June 8. They filed one count of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of criminal threats, one count of brandishing a knife and one count of battery. O’Neal remains in the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The police report revealed that one of the five people allegedly assaulted by O’Neal sustained “significant and serious stab wounds and cuts to his face, neck and upper body," while another had a serious stab wound to the left of his body. O’Neal also allegedly tried to attack another victim with a broken glass bottle.
