A MAN has been charged with a string of offences after another man’s skull was fractured and his finger almost severed in a horrific fight at a home in Forster yesterday.
Police said a 25-year-old man went to a house in Forster Keys about 12.30pm and asked to speak to a woman.
An 18-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman at the home refused to let the man inside, however he managed to get in through an open window.

Once inside, police say the man became involved in an argument with the woman which escalated into a physical fight.
The two men then began to fight, during which the younger man was hit with a glass implement and had his finger bitten so hard it almost severed it.
The young man was rushed to Port Macquarie Hospital, where he is being treated for fractures to his skull and will undergo reconstruction surgery on his hand.
The 25-year-old man took off from the house but was arrested by police nearby. He was also taken to Port Macquarie Hospital for treatment for his injuries, where he is then alleged to have spat at a nurse.
The man has since been charged with assault (DV), assault, breach of AVO, special aggravated break and enter and malicious wounding.
He was refused bail at Taree Local Court and will be remanded in custody until his next appearance on 17 July.
