Farrah Fawcett's son Redmond O'Neal charged with attempted murder

Redmond O'Neal, son of legendary actress Farrah Fawcett, has been charged with attempted murder following a violent crime spree in Los Angeles.

On Friday, authorities announced that O'Neal has additionally been charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of attempted murder, criminal threats, brandishing a knife and battery.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, O'Neal was arrested on robbery and drug charges on May 8 after robbing a 7-Eleven in Santa Monica, California.

Redmond O'Neal, Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett attend the "Malibu's Most Wanted" Los Angeles Premiere on April 10, 2003.

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.

According to police, O'Neal punched the man and tried to stab him with a broken bottle.

But US oil had rebounded by Tuesday's close amid expectations US crude oil stockpiles likely fell for a second week last week. It also follows Washington's decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran's crude exports, which could disrupt global oil supply.

Police say O'Neal was later found on the street carrying cash and a knife.

"Initially, the victim thought that the suspect (O'Neal) had merely "punched" him in the back", LAPD officials said in a press release. 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. 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.

Redmond James O'Neal is seen in a booking photo released by LAPD on June 8, 2018. The authorities also suspect that O'Neal committed this crime because of blood and fingerprints he reportedly left at the scene of the crime.

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.

He has a lengthy history of trouble the law involving drug possession.

O'Neal has not entered a plea for the new attempted murder charge.
