A man has suffered serious stab wounds after an incident at a house in West Auckland late last night.

Emergency services responded to an incident in a home on Gardner Ave, New Lynn, around 11.30pm on Friday.

A police spokesperson said police were dispatched after "receiving information" that a person had been stabbed there.

"An injured man was located by police at the property and taken to hospital with serious injuries," the spokesperson said.

Police confirmed they had arrested a 47-year-old man in relation to the incident "soon after".

The man has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, driving in a dangerous manner and failing to stop when followed by red/blue flashing lights.

He is due to appear in the Waitākere District Court today.
