A man accused of stabbing news broadcaster Barry Soper's son is due to appear in court.

The 37-year-old was arrested on Saturday morning and charged with wounding with intent to injure.

He is set to appear in the Wellington District Court on Monday.

Newstalk ZB political editor Soper told NZME at the weekend his 23-year-old son, Henry, had gotten into an argument on Courtenay Pl about 3am on Saturday, where he was struck in the arm with a knife.
