Greg Alyn Carlson, who is a wanted fugitive now on the FBI ten most wanted list has been described by Los Angeles Police as a Hot Prowl sexual assault suspect. This was according to a flyer distributed by the Los Angeles Police Department before he was identified and arrested as a suspect in this case. As detailed in a Melrose Action neighborhood watch blog post.
What is a Hot Prowl Sexual Assault?
Greg Alyn Carlson was charged for the crime committed on July 3, 2017 as quoted in a Melrose Action neighborhood blog post
“According to witnesses, after casing the place in the afternoon of Monday, July 3, 2017, the suspect entered the residence around 11:50 p.m. and confronted the two young women who had just moved in. They were hanging curtains when the suspect threatened them with a gun, tied them up, and then sexually assaulted them. After several months of investigation, Carlson was identified as the suspect. He was originally from the Washington D.C., area, but lived in Santa Monica at the time of the assault. The escaping victims’ screams alerted neighbors who sheltered the naked women until police arrived.”
The Los Angeles Police Department then distributed flyers around the immediate area asking for the resident’s help in identifying the unknown suspect that ultimately they identified as the fugitive Greg Alyn Carlson.
The Los Angeles Police Department also created a Police artist sketch of the suspect later identified as Greg Alyn Calrson who was subsequently charged with this crime.
