A 15-year-old is one of two people arrested after a Manurewa bus driver was stabbed while working.

Emergency services were called to Browns Road about 5:45 after the driver was stabbed in front of passengers.

The man was taken to Middlemore Hospital in a serious condition with stab wounds to his neck and stomach.

Officers administering first aid helped prevent the injuries from becoming more serious.

A 15-year-old and 20-year-old were arrested shortly after at a nearby address.

They will appear in the Manukau Youth and District Court tomorrow.
