Farrah Fawcett’s Son Faces Attempted Murder Charge After Violent Crime Spree

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's spree began on May 2, when he allegedly attacked a man for looking at him.

On May 3 at about 3:30 a.m., a suspect fitting O'Neal's description approached a man leaving a store in the 3400 block of Overland Avenue. The man sustained minor injuries to his face. "Initially, the victim thought that the suspect (O'Neal) had merely 'punched him in the back, ' LAPD said in a statement". Three hours later, another man was found nearby lying in a pool of blood with serious stab wounds to his face, neck and upper body. O'Neal fled the scene, police said. Law enforcements said a man who matched Redmond's description was seen walking up to the man and impaling him with a knife.

'However, once paramedics arrived, the paramedics discovered that the victim had sustained serious stab wounds to the left side of his body, ' it read. He had been arrested on May 8 for allegedly robbing a 7-11 store in Los Angeles, USA Today notes, and police noticed something: A violent crime spree in the area suddenly stopped.

This isn't the first time O'Neal has got himself into trouble either.

The LAPD says O'Neal has reportedly since been connected to other crimes after he was identified through facial tattoos and red hair.

In the final incident that police attribute to Redmond, he allegedly became belligerent inside a coffee shop and when an employee intervened, police say Redmond pulled out a folding knife and "lunged, jabbed and threatened to harm the employee with the knife".

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.

O'Neal is the only son of actors Ryan O'Neal, a star of TV and film, and Farrah Fawcett, the '70s icon and model whose acting career skyrocketed after her role in "Charlie's Angels".

O'Neal's parents are Ryan O'Neal and the late Fawcett, who were together from 1979 to 1997 and 2001 until her death in 2009.
