ALBANY, NY - District Attorney P. David Soares announced today that QARAYONE LOMACK, aka QUARAIONE LOMACK, 20, of Albany, was sentenced to 25 years in State Prison, to be followed by 20 years of Post-Release Supervision, before the Honorable Roger D.

On December 12, 2019, LOMACK pleaded guilty to (1) Count of Rape in the First Degree, a Class B Felony, and (1) Count of Attempted Kidnapping in the Second Degree as a Class D Sexually Motivated Felony.

On July 28, 2019, LOMACK approached a jogger while she was running in the vicinity of Washington Park in the City of Albany. LOMACK attempted to pull this victim in to the bushes and held what appeared to be a gun to her head while threatening to shoot her if she did not comply. The victim was able to fend off LOMACK and he fled the area.

Later that same day, at approximately 12:12 P.M., LOMACK unlawfully entered a residence in the Upper Washington Avenue neighborhood the City of Albany. While inside, LOMACK held a knife to a female resident’s throat and sexually assaulted her. After the rape, LOMACK demanded money from the victim, and forced her to drive her car to a bank on Patroon Creek Blvd. The victim was able to get a message out that she needed help and police were contacted. Members of the University at Albany Police Department arrived while LOMACK was forcing the victim to retrieve money from the automatic teller machine and they were able to take him in to custody without incident.

LOMACK was sentenced today to (25) years for the Rape conviction, in addition to a concurrent sentence of 15 years for the Kidnapping conviction. In addition, LOMACK will be mandated to abide by Sex Offender conditions and register as a Sex Offender as part of the sentence.
