Daytona Beach residents have been warned to watch out for an "armed and dangerous" fugitive who was seen in the area.

  • Greg Alyn Carlson wanted for armed sexual assaults in LA
  • Carlson was seen in Daytona Beach, Jacksonville in November 2017

On Wednesday, the FBI issued a warning that Greg Alyn Carlson is wanted for alleged armed sexual assaults in Los Angeles and that he was seen in Daytona Beach on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017.

On Sept. 3, 2017, Carlson was charged with assault with intent to commit rape, burglary and assault with a firearm, but he posted bond and was released on Sept. 26, the FBI stated.

"After he posted bond, Carlson allegedly fled to a family home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and, sometime after, left there with a stolen handgun, rental car, and a significant amount of cash," the FBI stated in a news release. "Carlson has indicated that he will not return to Los Angeles to face prosecution."

He fled South Carolina in a stolen rental car and has been seen in Hoover, Ala., where after a high-speed pursuit, he managed to escape police, according to the FBI.

He was then seen in Jacksonville, Fla., on Nov. 28, and then in Daytona Beach two days later, confirmed the FBI.

The FBI stated that the 46-year-old Carlson should be considered armed and dangerous and an escape risk. He has since been charged with the additional crime of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Carlson is described as a white man who is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds with black hair.

Anyone with information should contact the FBI.
