A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest or arrests of those responsible for  a rock-throwing incident that injured two spectators at the Del Oro High School Band  Spectacular Saturday night.
 
 A man was struck in the head and a young girl was hit in the hand by large rocks around 8 p.m.  as they sat in the visitor  bleachers. They both received medical aid at the scene.

 ‘It’s very fortunate that these injuries were not more serious,’ said Lt. Jeff Ausnow. ‘The rocks  were the size of baseballs and had the potential to cause more serious injuries.’

Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous and receive up to $1,000 in reward money is urged to call Placer County Crime Stoppers, toll-free at 800-923-8191. Operators are available 24 hours a day. If that information leads to an arrest or arrests, a cash reward will be paid. All information remains confidential.
