The son of two famous Hollywood actors is accused of conducting a crime spree in Southern California that left one man stabbed in the face and lying in a pool of blood, USA Today reports. Police say Redmond O'Neal, the son of actor Ryan O'Neal and late actor Farrah Fawcett, indiscriminately assaulted five men between May 2 and May 5, seriously injuring two of them. 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. Now O'Neal is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of battery, and one count of brandishing a knife.
In one case, Redmond allegedly got angry May 2 when someone "appeared to look at him," then punched him and tried to strike with a broken glass bottle before fleeing, police say. 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. Redmond's half-sister Tatum O'Neal told People three years ago that "he's got addiction problems so bad that it breaks my heart. I love him, but I have never seen a more scary side of addiction. Nobody knows what to do with Redmond. From what I’ve seen, there is no way he’s going to survive." (Read more assault stories.)
