Former Santa Monica Resident Makes FBI’s List of "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives"
By Jorge Casuso
September 27, 2018 -- A former Santa Monica resident wanted for armed sexual assault has been added to the FBI’s list of "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives," agency officials announced Thursday.
Greg Alyn Carlson, 46, who is being sought for his alleged involvement in an armed sexual assault in the Los Angeles area last year, should be considered "armed and extremely dangerous," authorities said.
Based on their investigation, detectives believe Carlson is a "sexual predator" who is "likely responsible for additional sexual assaults," FBI officials said.
Carlson -- who previously lived in Santa Monica and Redondo Beach --
Carlson was charged with burglary, assault with intent to commit rape and assault with a deadly weapon in an incident that took place in July 13 of last year.
He was arrested in September 2017 but posted bail and was released, authorities said. He was last seen in Florida.
The list "is reserved for a select few who need to be taken off the streets based on their horrible crimes and where widespread publicity can play an important role,” said Paul D. Delacourt, the FBI Assistant Director in Charge of the Los Angeles Field Office.
After posting bond, Carlson fled to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina and is then believed to have left with "a stolen handgun, a rental car and a significant amount of cash," authorities said.
On November 22, 2017, Carlson was seen in Hoover, Alabama, where he led police on "an erratic, high-speed pursuit that was terminated by the police due to the potential danger to the public," officials said.
On November 28, 2017, Carlson was seen in Jacksonville, Florida, and two days later in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Carlson was last seen traveling in a stolen white, four-door, 2017 Hyundai Accent rental car with South Carolina license plate NKI-770.
“Greg Alyn Carlson joins the notorious Top Ten list because he is considered an enemy to the public, and we believe his violence may escalate," Delacourt said.
"My hope is that his photograph will be viewed by many on the Internet, on every phone, in every newspaper, and on television sets across the world until he is caught.”
The FBI has offered a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to Carlson's arrest. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the FBI at (888) 226-8443 or their local law enforcement agency.
Anyone who believes they were victimized by Carlson but did not report it at the time should contact LAPD Robbery Homicide at (213) 486-6910.
