A Pilbara taxi driver was left with minor injuries following a rock attack in South Hedland last night.

Another rock struck the male driver on the arm, resulting in a minor injury.

The main offender is believed to be in his mid 40s, with light brown skin and about 165cm tall. He was travelling with another male and two female passengers.
