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.

Good state prison let the state foot his bill..Why do they call him a Valencia man wasn't his car jacking conviction in Tulare why is he paroled down here?

What a total scumbag! I hope he is locked up for a very long time.

This is the kind of guy that no amount of warm and fuzzy programs or "rehabilitation" will help. He's just pure evil. I truly believe that some people are actually born evil, that it's just their predetermined nature. Thankfully, those people are very few and far between.

Looks like the Myers Clan vacated Valencia in the nick of time!

I don't care for this guy either. I am going to play devil's advocate though.

It seems that his old charges are from 10 years ago when he was 18. Does not sound like a career criminal. I think life in prison is ridiculous. He should do a couple years though. Maybe drugs are an issue as his temper seems to be out of control the past month.

The story also says that the couple got in his face about driving before he lost his temper. Not an excuse for sure, but at least he was not looking for trouble.

He may have not realized how much damage he could do with a BB. Stupid move.
The kids who were driving around shooting signs the other day should read this story. They ended up with no charges but it could have gone completely
different if they had accidently injured someone.

Now this poor woman has to suffer. I hope the outcome for her is better than the story makes out.
