Ac­cused sex­ual preda­tor seen in SC

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Local - BY EMILY BOHATCH ebo­[email protected]­

An “al­leged sex­ual preda­tor” on the FBI’s most wanted list was seen in South Carolina re­cently, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the Fed­eral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Greg Alyn Carl­son, 46, has been on the run from the FBI since Septem­ber 2017, and was seen about two weeks ago in the Mount Pleas­ant area, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

Carl­son, who is ac­cused of at­tempt­ing to sex­u­ally as­sault a woman dur­ing an armed bur­glary in Los An­ge­les, has known ties to the area, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. Of­fi­cials said it was not the first time he ap­peared in the Pal­metto State.

Af­ter the July 2017 bur­glary, Carl­son was charged with bur­glary, as­sault with in­tent to com­mit rape and as­sault with a deadly weapon, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. He was ar­rested by L.A. po­lice in Septem­ber, but was re­leased on bond.

Once out of jail, Carl­son ran to Mount Pleas­ant, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials. He fled the state once he ob­tained a stolen gun, a rental car and a sig­nif­i­cant amount of cash.

Since then, Carl­son bounced through the south­east­ern states, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. He was last seen driv­ing a white Hyundai Ac­cent.

Of­fi­cials say Carl­son should be con­sid­ered “armed and ex­tremely dan­ger­ous.” A $100,000 re­ward is be­ing of­fered for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to his ar­rest.
