It follows the trouble in the area on Tuesday evening.

Police said the 19-year-old man was expected before Belfast Magistrates' Court on Wednesday morning. The charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.

Six consecutive nights of violence have flared across the city this month in the wake of a decision to stop flying the Union Flag at City Hall all year round.
