LOS ANGELES — A former delivery driver has been charged with a series of alleged attacks over a one-week period during the holiday season, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.

An amended complaint was filed today against Joshua Immanuel Ebow (dob 5/11/89), charging him with two felony counts each of assault with a deadly weapon and battery, and one felony count of exhibiting a deadly weapon. Additionally, the complaint includes one misdemeanor count of exhibiting a deadly weapon.

Case SA102013 also alleges the defendant committed a hate crime.

Ebow is scheduled to be arraigned today in Department W31 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch.

Deputy District Attorney Richard Ceballos of the Organized Crime Division is prosecuting the case.

On Dec. 25, 2019, Ebow is accused of attacking a man and brandishing a knife at a pizza restaurant in Inglewood. Several days later, Ebow allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed a man at a fast food restaurant in Culver City.

On Jan. 1, he allegedly assaulted a man in West Los Angeles with a knife. A day later, the defendant is accused of stabbing another victim at a store in Culver City. Ebow was later found and arrested on January 3.

The crimes were allegedly committed by the defendant because he perceived the victims to be gay or members of the LGBTQ community.

Prosecutors are recommending bail be set at $250,000. If convicted as charged, Ebow faces a possible maximum sentence of 14 years in state prison.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim can call the Los Angeles Police Department at (310) 444-1529 or the Culver City Police Department at (310) 253-6311.

Racist CVS Woman Lynn Patton Off Hook in Hate Crime Investigation

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — The woman who infamously went on a racist and hateful rant outside a CVS store in L.A. will NOT face any criminal charges … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Heather Lynn Patton is off the hook nearly 4 months after she went on a hateful tirade threatening to kill black people … and it was all caught on video.

After the LAPD opened an investigation, it was brought to the L.A. County DA’s Office for charge consideration but it was then kicked down to the City Attorney’s Office.

We’re told the City Attorney evaluated the criminal threats but ultimately they declined to prosecute her. As we reported … the disgraced Hollywood costume designer dropped n-bombs and viciously screamed she wanted to kill black people.

Patton worked on “Private Practice” among other shows … and celebs were quick to react. Patton ultimately apologized on Instagram … calling her actions inhumane and disgusting. She claimed the rant was the result of being intoxicated.
