After being out with friends on Christmas Eve last year, former Cootamundra woman Lauren Greene was left scarred and suffering permanent dental issues when she was allegedly assaulted in the Nicholson Park carpark on her way home.
On March 10, Cootamundra Police charged a 26-year-old Cootamundra man with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm arising from their investigation into the incident.
The man will now appear in Cootamundra Local Court on May 1.
Ms Greene had walked through the Woolworths carpark from Parker Street, past the pool and into Nicholson Park.
“The moon was light that night; I’m usually a cautious person but I thought I would be safe,” she said.
