A TEENAGER has been arrested and charged following the savage glassing of another teen in the Shoalhaven area on Friday night.

Police say an argument erupted between two groups of young men at a hotel on Owen Street, Huskisson, at around 11pm during which a 19-year-old male had a glass smashed in his face.


A flurry of punches were then allegedly thrown between two men.

Hotel security intervened and police were called to the location where a crime scene was established.

The 19-year-old was treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Shoalhaven Hospital with serious facial injuries.

An 18-year-old male was later arrested and taken to Nowra Police Station where he was charged with reckless wounding.

He has since been granted conditional bail and will appear in Nowra Local Court on Friday 16 November.
