(TeamRock Radio) Two Newport, UK women have been arrested in connection with an incident which left Skindred frontman Benji Webbe needing 24 stitches to his face and neck.

A 40-year-old has been arrested for assault (wounding with intent) and a 29-year-old has been arrested for affray and criminal damage. Both are currently on bail.

The Skindred vocalist was allegedly attacked with a glass while trying to break up an argument between a group of women outside the Crosskeys Pub in Newport city centre.

The 48-year-old says he and his partner Julie Christian were walking home from his friend's birthday party at The Lounge nightclub in the early hours of Saturday morning when they crossed paths with the women.

He told Wales Online: "I went outside with my girlfriend, Julie, and I saw about three or four girls arguing. As we went past them I tried to calm them down and said, 'Calm down will you,' jokingly.

"One of the women turned to me and came within four inches of my face, screaming and shouting." Read more here.
