A man accused of kidnapping a woman and throwing her down a four-metre embankment off the Snowy Mountains Highway has been charged with another offence.
The matter of Roger Phillip McGrath, 54, was mentioned in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday, but he was not required to appear.
Police have alleged that the Talbingo man assaulted a woman, aged in her 70s, in the Snowy Mountains after he forcibly took her to the location by car.
A solicitor for the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions notified Magistrate Christopher Halburd that a fresh charge had been laid.
Mr McGrath is now also accused of stalk or intimidate intending to cause fear of physical or mental harm, domestic violence-related.
