Four people have been charged after a glassing incident in Newcastle..

A 34-year-old Belmont woman was struck in the head with a wine bottle outside the Kent hotel at about 10pm on Saturday, after arguing with a 40-year-old Elermore Vale woman.

She required 10 stitches to a cut on her forehead.

The 40-year-old and three other people were arrested, after tussling with police.

They’ve been bailed to appear in Newcastle Local Court later this month.
