Dalton Police seek man on sexual charges

The Dalton Police Department has announced it is seeking information on the whereabouts of Lawrence Edward “Larry” Womac, 57, who is wanted 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.

A department news release said that on July 20 Womac had asked two juvenile girls into his room at the Guest Inn at 2220 Chattanooga Road. The girls were also guests at the hotel, but staying in a different room.

While in the room, Womac raped one of the girls and sexually assaulted the other. The two girls fled the room and the incident was reported to police, who began an investigation.

The release said Womac has lived in the Dalton and Whitfield County area all of his life, but those investigating do not have where he now lives.

He is described as being five feet and nine inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds.

Anyone who has information about where Womac can be located should contact Detective Jason Thompson at 706-278-9085, extension 174.
