Redmond O’Neal Charged With Attempted Murder In Crime Spree

The son of actor Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was charged on Friday (Saturday NZT) with attempted murder and assault in what police called a series of violent and unprovoked attacks in Los Angeles.

Redmond James O'Neal is also facing charges of making criminal threats, battery, brandishing a weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a news release.

One of the men was stabbed in the head and seriously injured, according to authorities. He also was charged with possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection device and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, according to the district attorney. On May 8, O'Neal was arrested on suspicion of using a knife while robbing a 7-Eleven store in Santa Monica, the newspaper reported.

All five alleged attacks involve a suspect whose description, at least partially, matches that of O'Neal, including being white, with red hair and distinct tattoos.

O'Neal is alleged to have gotten into an argument and punched a stranger on the night of May 2.

O'Neal allegedly got into a fight at a coffee shop and threatened staff with a knife on May 5, police said.

"After O'Neal's arrest, the violent crime spree ended and Pacific Area robbery detectives found O'Neal strongly matched the description of the suspect in these crimes", LAPD officials said in the press release. And with this particular crime, Redmond allegedly left fingerprints at the scene, which helped authorities identify him as a suspect.

O'Neal has pleaded not guilty to all charges in the May 8 robbery.

Redmond has been in jail since the 7-11 incident, his next hearing is scheduled for July. Scotty Stevens told the news station, adding that the crimes appeared to be random.

In an interview with Radar Online from prison on May 24, O'Neal blamed his famous family for all of his troubles with drugs and the law. His attorney, Nina E. Daly, appeared in court and asked the judge for more time because O'Neal is trying to hire a doctor, who will evaluate his mental competency to stand trial.
