A homeless man was charged today with attacking an 11-year-old boy outside a downtown Los Angeles concert hall last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Raul Villalba Ocampo (dob 11/19/82) was charged in case BA442175 with one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and child abuse. The criminal complaint also alleges Ocampo used keys as a deadly and dangerous weapon during the commission of the crime.

Ocampo pleaded not guilty and is expected to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 24.

On Dec. 10, the boy was on a field trip and standing outside the Walt Disney Concert Hall when Ocampo allegedly assaulted him.

If convicted as charged, Ocampo faces a possible maximum sentence of seven years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
