Detectives with the LAPD Pacific Area division presented their findings to the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office on Friday and filed one count of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of brandishing a knife and one count of battery.
O'Neal - who has a long history of drug problems and run-ins with the law - had allegedly been attacking random people who walked by him between May 2 and May 5 in the Venice Beach and Palms neighborhoods of Los Angeles, according to authorities.
One of the five alleged victims was found in a pool of blood with stab wounds to his face and upper body, while a second man was also seriously injured, police said.
The spree came to an end when O'Neal was arrested for armed robbery at a convenience store in Santa Monica on May 8.
The LAPD says O'Neal has reportedly since been connected to other crimes after he was identified through facial tattoos and red hair.
