CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Hamilton County grand jury has indicted a man accused of throwing rocks at cars in the Corryville area.

Rodney Maxwell, 41, faces four counts of felonious asault.

Police say Maxwell threw a rock on Aug. 18 while a car was waiting at a stoplight in the 600 block of William Howard Taft. The rock struck the victim on the chin. Police say Maxwell did it again on Aug. 20 in the same location.

On Sept. 14, he returned to the same place and struck a victim in the back of the head. Later that day, he threw one at a car in the 2500 block of Highland Ave. That rock landed between the victim's head and the head rest.

None of victims were seriously hurt.

This all comes after a recent case in which a teenager pled guilty to throwing rocks at cars on Columbia Parkway, seriously injuring a woman.
