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".

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.
