State Corrections records show that Leonard Scroggins, 32, who has been in and out of prison since he was a teenager, has a history of parole violations.
     
He was paroled in 1999 after serving time for violating a state law prohibiting aiding or abetting rape or penetration with a foreign object but went back to prison that same year, and again in 2001 and 2002 for parole violations.

In 2004 he was imprisoned for making a terrorist threat. He was released in January but was back in custody the next month for parole violations, before finally being released on March 6.

NBCSanDiego learned Friday that the latest parole violation was a violation of Jessica's Law and failure to follow the direction of parole officials. It was also learned that Scroggins allegedly cut his GPS bracelet on Monday after allegedly fondling a young girl in Napa County.
    
A warrant was issued automatically.

On Tuesday evening at 9:16 in Chula Vista, he allegedly tried to rob a 17-year-girl and a short time later, Chula Vista police said, tried to abduct a woman who was stabbed in the arm while she fought him off .

On Wednesday afternoon, he allegedly tried to rob a 19-year-old woman, followed shortly by an attempted kidnap of a 13-year-old girl, who successullly fought him off.

Why San Diego?

"As far as I know there's no contacts," said National City Police Department Sgt. Dennis Leach. "There's the possibility, maybe he was going to be headed south of the border to flee justice, but we can't confrim that."

NBCSanDiego also learned Monday that Scroggins father, who shares his son's name, is also a registered sex offender in California.
