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 - who has had a history of drug and legal troubles - allegedly began his attacks on passersby last Saturday and continued through Tuesday in Venice Beach and Palms neighbourhoods, authorities have said.

Police say two men were seriously injured, including one who was stabbed in the face. 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. Police said the suspect, described as having red hair and distinct tattoos, randomly attacked five men in unprovoked confrontations. He punched the victim before trying to stab him with a broken bottle, leaving the man with minor injuries to his face.

O'Neal allegedly got into a fight at a coffee shop and threatened staff with a knife on May 5, police said.

"After O'Neal's arrest, the violent crime spree ended and Pacific Area robbery detectives found O'Neal strongly matched the description of the suspect in these crimes", LAPD said. As it was previously reported, O'Neal pleaded guilty on the 11th of May to robbing a store in Santa Monica. "It appears, though, based on what we know now, that it just started as an argument between unknown persons and quickly escalated with the violent acts". Scotty Steven told KABC.

Redmond O'Neal, 33, faces multiple charges, including attempted murder, authorities say.

Fawcett was 62 when she died of anal cancer on June 25, 2009, the same day Michael Jackson died. Redmond was her only child. Back in 2008, the police nabbed him on a DUI and drug possession charge, and again in 2011 for obtaining heroin. He was then sentenced to three years in state prison in 2015 for violating his probation and was released early in 2016.
