Prior to O’Neal’s arrest, a crime spree had wreaked havoc on that area of West L.A., with five men being randomly attacked, according to LAPD. Two of those men were left seriously injured.

That period of violence suddenly ended when O’Neal was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery on May 8, police said. Authorities had identified him as the suspect in a 7-Eleven robbery.

O’Neal is believed by LAPD to be behind all the unprovoked attacks and the armed robbery, with police citing evidence and eyewitnesses who link him to the crimes.

The charges against O’Neal were filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office on Friday, police said.

No further information was released by LAPD.
