O'Neal, 33, is alleged by police to have gotten into an argument and punched a stranger on the night of May 2.
O'Neal allegedly stabbed a man with a knife near the Venice Beach Boardwalk on May 4. He then lunged, jabbed and threatened to harm the employee with the knife before fleeing. The victim sustained minor injuries to his head.
Other incidents included several unprovoked attacks on people, including one who was stabbed in the face by the troubled Hollywood spawn. At about 4 p.m. on May 5, a man believed to be Redmond O'Neal became belligerent inside a coffee shop at Pacific Avenue and Windward Avenue.
Redmond James O'Neal is also facing charges of making criminal threats, battery, brandishing a weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a news release.
O'Neal was responsible for all of the attacks, which police described as random, according to People magazine.
O'Neal was arrested a few days later on May 8 as a suspect of an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven, and was linked to the earlier attacks due to his red hair and distinctive tattoos. "However, once paramedics arrived, the paramedics discovered that the victim had sustained serious stab wounds to the left side of his body". Nearby surveillance video captured a man fitting O'Neal's description, who walked away from the scene shortly after the victim was found lying on the sidewalk.
This isn't the first time O'Neal has got himself into trouble either. And with this particular crime, Redmond allegedly left fingerprints at the scene, which helped authorities identify him as a suspect. In a press statement released to the public from the LAPD, the detectives from the Pacific Area stood before the court on the 8th of June and presented their evidence. When police were called, they found drugs and drug paraphernalia on O'Neal as well, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. As it was previously reported, O'Neal pleaded guilty on the 11th of May to robbing a store in Santa Monica.
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.
