California woman charged with attempted murder after trying to shove teen off bridge

A California woman was charged with attempted murder and is being held on $500,000 bail after she allegedly tried to push a high school boy off a bridge.

Stephanie Redondo, 23, allegedly attacked two high school cross country runners.

“During the assault, the suspect grabbed one of the victims and attempted to push him over the bridge safety railing,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

“The victim and additional cross country team members were able to fight off the suspect and were not injured,” OCSO said.

“Thankfully the juvenile victims and witnesses reacted swiftly, and no one sustained serious physical injury from this incident. This is an important reminder of how quickly a situation can escalate and that personal safety should always be top-of-mind.”

Redondo, described as a transient, was arrested at the scene and is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday.
