Man charged over rock attack A 25-YEAR-OLD man will appear in court next month charged with maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm following a rock-throwing incident at Kiama on the NSW south coast. Nicole Miller, 22, has had part of her skull removed and remains on a ventilation machine in hospital after the car she was travelling in was showered with rocks early yesterday morning. She was returning from a night out in Wollongong with two friends at about 3.15am (AEST) when a barrage of rocks slammed into their Holden Astra just after they passed the Riverside Drive overpass on the Princes Highway. Miss Miller, 22, who was sitting in the rear left passenger seat, suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Wollongong Hospital. She underwent emergency surgery and remains in a critical condition. Lake Illawarra Police went to an address in Tarrant Street, Kiama Downs, at about 8pm last night and arrested the 25-year-old man. He was taken to Port Kembla Police Station where he was questioned and later charged. He was granted conditional bail and is expected to appear in Wollongong Local Court on August 21. Two Kiama men, both aged 19, yesterday assisted police with their inquiries and were released pending further investigation.
