Dalton Police say they are looking for a convicted sex offender who they say assaulted 2 women at hotel Tuesday.

The Dalton Police Department (DPD) says both women were able to escape.

43-year old Aaron Terrell Tyler of Clayton County, Georgia is a convicted sex offender in connection to a 1995 case in Illinois, DPD says.

DPD says the women went to the Dalton Police Services Center Tuesday morning to report an assault.

The woman told an investigator that she was staying overnight at the Red Roof Inn on West Walnut Avenue while traveling through the area.

She was loading her car to check out when DPD says she was approached by a man who asked her if he could help her with her luggage.

The woman declined and went back to her room and DPD says the man followed her inside.

He closed the door behind them and attempted to lock the door but DPD says the woman began to yell and scream for help.

After being unable to quiet the victim down, the man fled.

At this point, DPD says a description of the man was given to patrol officers who began to look for the suspect.

When the detective arrived at the hotel, DPD says staff at the front desk told them that a man matching the suspect’s description was staying at the hotel under the name Aaron Tyler.

Detectives attempted to make contact with Tyler, but were unable to locate him.

DPD says the detective then encountered a second woman in the lobby of the hotel who was very upset and reported encountering the same man.

The second victim told investigators that she had a knock on the door of her room earlier in the morning and that when she answered the door, a man matching the suspect’s description attempted to force his way into the room.

DPD says the victim was able to stop him and push him back out and closed and locked the door to get away.

Investigators executed a search warrant on the room rented by Tyler and DPD says they were able to determine that he was the man involved in both assaults.

Investigators determined that Tyler was released from jail in Clayton County yesterday and was in Dalton waiting to begin a drug treatment program, but had been denied entry in the program.

Investigators believe that this is Tyler’s only connection to the Dalton area.

DPD says Aaron Terrell Tyler is a Black man standing 5’10” tall and weighing approximately 280-300 pounds.

DPD says he has a bald head and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and gray shorts with a white tank top undershirt underneath.

DPD says he has warrants for simple assault and false imprisonment connected to this morning’s incidents.

He was last seen in the area of Market Street and West Walnut Avenue, DPD says.

Anyone with information on where he can be found or any other information is asked to contact Detective Chris Tucker at (706) 278-9085 extension 9-165 or call 911.
