The son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly carrying out a string of violent attacks around Los Angeles.

O'Neal faces multiple charges including two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of attempted murder, criminal threats and brandishing a knife and one count of battery.

CBS Los Angeles reports two men were seriously injured, including one who was stabbed in the face.

O'Neal has already pleaded "not" guilty to the robbery and other charges that include possessing methamphetamine and heroin. 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.

O'Neal, 33, had been arrested May 8 on suspicion of armed robbery after a heist at a 7-Eleven store.

"Initially, the victim thought that the suspect had merely "punched" him in the back", authorities said in the statement. The victim sustained serious stab wounds and cuts to his face, neck and upper body.

On May 5 at about 4 p.m., investigators said a suspect also fitting O'Neal's description brandished a folding knife at an employee of a coffee shop on Pacific and Windward avenues.

"I love him, but I have never seen a more scary side of addiction", Tatum O'Neal, who famously has battled her own drug addictions, told the magazine. 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. And with this particular crime, Redmond allegedly left fingerprints at the scene, which helped authorities identify him as a suspect. Redmond's mother, Farrah Fawcett, famous starring in the first season of Charlie's Angels on ABC, died in 2009.

The troubled celeb son was a no-show for a scheduled hearing at the Los Angeles County Mental Health Court on Friday morning for his robbery charges. He was then sentenced to three years in state prison in 2015 for violating his probation and was released early in 2016.
