A 28-year-old Valencia man was charged Wednesday for an alleged road rage incident in Stevenson Ranch Saturday in which a woman suffered a serious injury to her eye. The suspect, if convicted, could face multiple life terms in state prison, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Cory Allen Flenory, appeared in San Fernando Superior Court Wednesday. He faces one count each of mayhem and vandalism over $400, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, said Deputy District Attorney Guy Shirley.

Prosecutors also allege Flenory used the BB gun as a deadly weapon and that he has a 2005 felony conviction in Tulare for carjacking, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, Shirley said.

The felony complaint filed against him also includes one count of injuring a spouse for an unrelated incident on May 5. That incident also involved a BB gun, said District Attorney spokesman Ricardo Santiago.

On May 17, Flenory shot one of two victims in the eye after they attempted to confront him over almost colliding with his vehicle at a Walmart parking lot in Stevenson Ranch, Shirley said.

The victim suffered permanent damage to her eye, Santiago said.

The incident happened on West Pico Canyon Road and The Old Road, near Coco’s Bakery Restaurant, Deputy Josh Dubin said Monday.

Dubin also said Monday that the victim, a photographer, had been transferred from Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital to another hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to save her eye.

He also confirmed reports that surgeons at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center spent seven hours attending to the woman’s injury.

At 7:53 a.m. Monday, detectives arrested Flenory at a location in the 28100 block of McBean Parkway on suspicion of mayhem, Dubin said.

During the arrest, deputies used pepper spray to detain the suspect after he allegedly “kicked out” the window of a sheriff’s car, Dubin said.

Flenory remains in custody at the Inmate Reception Center on Bauchet Street in Los Angeles.

During his court appearance Wednesday, Flenory had his bail set at $1,275,000. His arraignment on the charges is scheduled to continue on June 10.

If convicted as charged, Flenory faces multiple life terms in state prison, said Santiago.
