The Dalton Police Department has arrested Lawrence Edward “Larry” Womac, 57, on warrants for rape, aggravated assault, aggravated sodomy, false imprisonment, cruelty to children in the first degree, sexual battery against a child under 16 years of age, and aggravated child molestation.
After receiving multiple phone tips regarding his whereabouts, Womac was taken into custody Wednesday at a home off of Westside Circle near Rocky Face, Ga. He was taken into custody without incident.
An agent from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation helped take Womac into custody.
Police said shortly after midnight on Friday, Womac invited two juvenile girls into his room at the Guest Inn at 2220 Chattanooga Road. The girls were guests at the hotel staying in a different room. While in the room, Womac raped one of the girls and sexually assaulted the other, police said. Both girls fled the room. The incident was reported to police who started an investigation.
Womac has lived in the Dalton and Whitfield County area all of his life but investigators did not have an address for him.
