LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The FBI is asking for help in locating a man on its top 10 most wanted fugitives list, who they recently learned is from California. 

Authorities say Greg Alyn Carlson, of Los Angeles, has been on the run from a little over one year. 

Los Angeles detectives know the suspect as a "hot prowl" rapist, who breaks into the homes of women to attack them while they sleep.

His latest suspected attack happen on the west side of Los Angeles, not far from the FBI headquarters. 

"He viciously attacked the woman there when she returned home, beating her about the head with a gun and also attempting to assault her sexually," said Captain Billy Hates of the Los Angeled Police Department. 

One woman managed to escape, and police arrested Carlson, but he posted 1 million in bail with money he borrowed from his parents. 

His parents said they paid that bail so he could travel to where they live in South Carolina. 

Detectives say he was last seen stealing a handgun and a rent-a-car in the state but has since gone off the radar. 

There is now a $100,000 reward for his capture.
