Redmond O'Neal, the son of actors Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, was arrested for robbing a Los Angeles convenience store on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirms to PEOPLE that O'Neal also threatened the clerk with a knife and demanded to take out money from the register. 

Authorities claim O'Neal fled the scene after the clerk handed over the money, but was found when police allegedly uncovered the knife that matched the clerks description. 

The 33-year-old was arrested on a robbery charge and is being held on $50,000 bail. He is requested to go to court on Thursday to determine if he will be granted bail or released.
