A MAN has been charged by police after allegedly glassing another man in the head with a champagne flute at a wedding reception in Sydney.
The two men were guests at the wedding reception at Doltone House, a function centre on Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont, when violence broke out just before midnight on Sunday.
Police said a 49-year-old man was sitting outside the function centre about 11.30pm when he was approached by another guest and struck in the back of the head with a champagne flute.
He suffered a cut to the head, and wedding guests who called triple-0 reported that he was bleeding heavily.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said paramedics treated the man for a minor injury to the back of the head. He was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in a stable condition.
Police from Sydney City Local Area Command were called to the function centre and arrested a 21-year-old man.
He was taken to Day Street Police Station, where he was charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, affray and resisting police.
He was remanded to appear in Central Local Court on Monday.
A NSW Police spokeswoman said it was unclear what the alleged dispute was over, and no further details about the incident were available.
The man was treated for minor injuries by paramedics at the scene.
