Corona Man Convicted of Raping Girlfriend in Jealous Rage: DA


Dec. 20, 2019 By Kristen Torres

A Corona man has been convicted for the brutal rape of his girlfriend last year, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office that made the announcement Thursday.

Olger Macas, 31, was found guilty of first and third-degree rape, second-degree sexual abuse and second-degree criminal contempt. He now faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 9.

According to the DA’s Office, Macas sexually assaulted his girlfriend in his 108th Street home back in February 2018.

Macas – who was angry at the victim for dancing with a male friend earlier in the evening – grabbed her, pinned her down and refused to allow her to leave the apartment.

Macas then removed the victim’s clothing, bit her on the leg and raped her.

When Macas fell asleep, the victim located her phone, which was hidden by the defendant earlier in the evening, and called police. Unable to locate her clothing, the victim wrapped herself in a towel and escaped from the apartment to wait outside for the police.

An order of protection was later issued against Macas, which he violated two weeks after. He violated it when he called the victim and begged her to take him back.

“The defendant in this case brutally beat and raped his girlfriend, who he professed to care deeply for,” said Acting District Attorney John Ryan. “He raged at her that if he couldn’t have her, no one would. A jury weighed the evidence presented at trial and found the defendant guilty of this heinous attack.”

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
