Police have called for information relating to an incident in Burton St, Harristown.

A TOOWOOMBA woman has told how she was attacked by a man who threw a large rock at her car and left her daughters fearing for their lives.

Brooke Graveson was in her car with her nieces when the man allegedly threw a pool ball-sized rock at her front windscreen.

She said the attack left her and her daughters shaken and scared and called the incident "disgusting".

When she started taking pictures of the man he hid his face and allegedly threatened her with violence.

He also yelled expletives at her.

"Take one step closer you sl*t and I'll start swinging," he allegedly said.

Ms Graveson said the man appeared to be on "some sort of drugs".

She has taken to social media to find the identity of the man and also reported the incident to police.

The terrifying attack happened on Burton St in Harristown.

Ms Graveson said the man was about 6ft tall, Caucasian, wearing a grey hoodie, jeans and had a black backpack.

"Any information about who he is or where he lives please inbox me or contact police ASAP as I am pressing charges and will be taking him to court to pay for my windscreen," she said.

Police have urged anyone who witnessed the incident to call Policelink on 131444 and quote the reference number QP1501784966.
