Authorities are asking the public to be on the lookout for an alleged sexual predator spotted last week in South Carolina. The suspect was added to the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive list in September.
The FBI reports that Greg Alyn Carlson, 46, was spotted in the Mount Pleasant area on November 2, where he’s said to have ties. Authorities think the suspect is still likely in the southeastern part of the U.S. He was seen driving a white Hyundai Accent and seen by at least two eyewitnesses.
Although Carlson has been spotted driving the Accent previously, he may have changed the license plate, the Global Dispatch reports.
In July 2017, Carlson reportedly robbed a woman in Los Angeles and tried to sexually assault her with a weapon. In September 2017, Los Angeles authorities arrested the suspect and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to commit rape, and burglary. Carlson was released on bail but never returned for his court hearing.

Carlson was later spotted in Hoover, Alabama, on November 22, 2017. Authorities pursued him during a high-speed chase but later called it off for public safety reasons. On November 28, 2017, he was spotted in Jacksonville, Florida, and two days later, witnesses spotted him in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Authorities indicated that Carlson likely carried out additional sexual assaults spanning a decade.
“We believe this collaborative effort will lead to the apprehension of Greg Carlson, an individual who has viciously attacked women and threatened the public safety over the past decade,” Captain Billy Hayes ofthe Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery Homicide Division said.
Anyone with any information regarding Carlson is urged to contact authorities immediately at the nearest nearest FBI office or local police agency. Authorities are offering a $100,000 reward for information that leads directly to the suspect’s arrest.
