Son of actors charged in series of attacks
LOS ANGELES — The son of actors Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was charged Friday with attempted murder and assault in what police called a series of violent attacks in Los Angeles.
Redmond James O’Neal allegedly stabbed a man near the Venice Beach boardwalk on May 4, then stabbed another man, inflicting serious wounds, police said.
O’Neal, 33, had been arrested May 8 on suspicion of armed robbery of a 7-Eleven store. He matched the description of the man in the earlier attacks, police said.
