RYAN O’Neal’s son Redmond was in a Los Angeles jail facing multiple charges for the alleged attack of five men, which resulted in two being seriously injured.
Redmond had previously been arrested for suspicion of robbing a 7-Eleven store in Venice Beach and threatening the store clerk at knifepoint, according to detectives.
Why was Redmond O'Neal in jail?
Redmond was arrested in May of 2018 over suspicion that he robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store in Venice Beach.
Detectives say he held the store clerk at knifepoint and demanded the clerk hand over an undisclosed amount of cash.
He was arrested and charged with six counts related to the alleged armed robbery in addition to drug possession at the time of the arrest.
Redmond pled not guilty to all charges and was denied bail by a judge.
What other charges has he faced?
Before being arrested, Redmond was wanted by police in connection to a week-long crime spree in the Venice Beach and Palms neighborhoods.
In addition to the charges he faced for the alleged convenience store robbery, Redmond was also charged with attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of brandishing a knife, and one count of battery.
Prosecutors said Redmond randomly attacked five men, seriously injuring at least two of the victims.
One man was found in a pool of blood with stab wounds to his head and upper body, prosecutors said.
