Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy has been arrested on suspicion of assault.

The player was taken into custody after two men were injured in an early morning incident in Cardiff.

The 31-year-old, who is currently on loan at npower Championship side Cardiff, was bailed today after speaking with officers.

He was arrested after the alleged assault on Caroline Street - informally known as "Chippy Lane" - at around 2.45am on Sunday.

The men, aged 20 and 26, sustained facial injuries.

A South Wales Police spokesman said: "A 31-year-old man has today been arrested on suspicion of assault and has been bailed pending further inquiries."
