Sword attack suspect is scheduled to be arraigned this morning

Randell Mason is scheduled to be arraigned.

The man accused of a vicious attack in Albany last week is set to appear in court this morning.

Mason will appear before judge McDonough at 11:30 a.m.

Mason is the man accused of attacking Jon Romano. Romano is the 2004 Columbia High School shooter. Mason was charged with attempted murder.

Mason is accused of attacking Romano with a sword at Community Connections, a drop-in center for the homeless. This took place on August 29.

Court documents say Mason slashed Romano’s head, as well as his limbs several times with a sword. We spoke to Romano back in February. He was working with law enforcement on ways to improve school safety.

At last check, Romano was in critical condition at Albany Med.
