Nelson Mail - - News - Tim O’Con­nell and Tim New­man

A man in his 50s is in hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion af­ter a stab­bing in the Nel­son sub­urb of Tahu­nanui.

The in­ci­dent took place around 3.10pm yes­ter­day.

St John com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Ger­ard Camp­bell said a man was taken to Nel­son Hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion.

Po­lice later ar­rested a 28-year-old man at the Med­i­cal and In­jury Cen­tre on Waimea Rd. He was re­ceiv­ing treat­ment for an in­jury.

It is be­lieved that the par­ties in­volved were known to each other. No-one else was be­ing sought in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent.

Four po­lice cars and an am­bu­lance went to a Green St ad­dress.

A neigh­bour said he had just ar­rived home from work when mul­ti­ple po­lice cars and am­bu­lances de­scended on the street.

He said he did not know the peo­ple at the ad­dress.

An­other neigh­bour at the scene said the prop­erty was re­cently very over­grown.

The house was well-known for peo­ple com­ing and go­ing at late hours of the evening, he said.

A man is re­moved from a Tahu­nanui ad­dress af­ter the in­ci­dent yes­ter­day.
