Carlson posted a $1 million bond that was secured by his mother's home. Authorities said he then fled to a family home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, then left with a stolen gun, rental car and cash.

He indicated he would not come back to Los Angeles to face prosecution, according to the FBI. He previously lived in Santa Monica and Redondo Beach.

Authorities believe he may be traveling in a white four-door 2017 Hyundai Accent rental car with South Carolina plates NKI-770.

Investigators said that Carlson may be responsible for other sexual assaults in the Los Angeles area. One of the last incidents happened on Dorothy Street in West L.A.

Bobbi Flores was a neighbor of the victim. When she head Carlson is still on the loose, she was taken aback.

"I'm starting to freak out again...I don't even want to see his face actually," she said.

Authorities call Carlson a hot prowler, but during this incident, he came in when the woman wasn't home. When she arrived home, she was confronted by Carlson who was armed. Flores said her neighbor fought back anyways.

"She kicked him and ran straight to her sliding glass door and screamed fire," she said.

Carlson was spotted in Hoover, Alabama on Nov. 22, where he led authorities on a dangerous high-speed chase that was terminated by police due to public safety concerns. On Nov. 28, he was spotted in Jacksonville, Florida and two days later in Daytona Beach, Florida.

On Dec. 12, a federal arrest warrant was issued for him and he received an additional charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

He has been known to use the aliases Greg A. Carlson and Greg Alym Carlson. He is described as a white man with brown, graying hair, green eyes, 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 170 pounds.

Carlson has been known to travel around Florida, Alabama and South Carolina. Authorities said there isn't a clear understanding if he was employed or how he may have earned money, but received information suggesting he was an actor in the past.
