Police are appealing for witnesses after a vehicle was damaged in a rock throwing incident on the Pacific Highway at Wooyung yesterday.
About 5.45pm yesterday (Tuesday 24 May 2017), a 41-year-old man was driving his Toyota Hilux northbound when its windscreen was smashed by a large rock as it passed under the Pottsville Road overpass.
The driver was uninjured and later reported the incident to police.
Inspector Bobbie Cullen from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command has reminded the public of the dangers of throwing rocks from overpasses.
‘This is a highly reckless and incredibly dangerous thing to do. It can easily result in the death of an innocent person, in which case the offender will be facing a murder charge,’ Inspector Cullen said.
Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have information in relation to the incident to come forward.
Police are urging anyone with information on the incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.
