Fugitive on FBI's 10 Most Wanted spotted in South Carolina
An accused sexual predator who's listed on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list has been seen in the Palmetto State.
Greg Alyn Carlson, 47, is wanted in connection with an armed sexual assault in the Los Angeles area back in July of 2017. The FBI says Carlson he sexually assaulted a woman while using a weapon during the commission of a burglary. He's charged with burglary, assault with intent to commit rape and assault with a deadly weapon. He was arrested by Los Angeles police but posted bond and was released.
"After posting bond, Carlson fled to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. At some point thereafter, investigators believe Carlson left South Carolina with a stolen handgun, a rental car, and a significant amount of cash," the FBI says.
Carlson led police on an "erratic, high-speed pursuit" in Hoover, Alabama, last November, which was terminated by police due to the potential danger to the public, authorities say.
He was later spotted in Jacksonville, Florida and Daytona Beach, Florida.
The FBI says Carlson was again spotted in the Mount Pleasant area about two weeks ago; he has known ties to the area. The FBI believes Carlson is still in the Southeast and is asking residents of South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Texas to be on the lookout for him.
He was most recently seen driving a late model, white Hyundai Accent bearing a South Carolina license plate, initially reported as "NKI-770", however, investigators believe Carlson may have stolen a plate from another vehicle.
Authorities say investigation indicates Carlson may responsible for additional sexual assaults and warn that Carlson should be considered armed and dangerous.
Carlson is described as having graying-brown hair and green eyes; he stands 5-foot-11 and weighs about 170 pounds. Authorities have information suggesting that Carlson has worked as an actor in the past.
A $100,000 reward is being offered for tips that lead to his arrest.
