Son of Ryan O'Neal Farrah Fawcett is charged with attempted murder

Detectives with the LAPD Pacific Area division presented their findings to the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office on Friday and filed one count of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of brandishing a knife and one count of battery.

The 33-year-old O'Neal allegedly punched and stabbed five men between May 2 and May 8 in Venice Beach and Palms neighborhoods, police said, reports PEOPLE.

Police said they arrested O'Neal because he matched witnesses' descriptions of a man with red ahir and facial tattoos and security footage. "They were identified by all the victims at the time", Los Angeles Police Sgt.

Around 2:30 a.m. that day, O'Neal tried to rob a convenience store in Santa Monica, brandishing a knife and demanding cash from the clerk, authorities said.

He pleaded not guilty to second-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection/ingestion device and two counts of possessing a controlled substance at the LAX Airport courthouse. Redmond O'Neal remains in the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. In another, a surveillance camera caught someone who looked like O'Neal leaving the area where a victim received "significant and serious stab wounds and cuts to his face, neck, and upper body" on May 4, per police.


Authorities have not released a motive and said the crimes seem random, but it may have started as an argument between unknown people. Scotty Steven told KABC.

Redmond O'Neal has a history of court appearances, mostly stemming from drug arrests.

O'Neal was previously arrested in 2008 for a DUI and drug possession, and again in 2011 for heroin possession.
