A teenager has been charged with attempted murder following a stabbing in central Auckland on Thursday.
The 18-year-old will appear in Auckland District Court on Friday morning.
The victim - an 18-year-old woman - remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
"This was not a random attack and the two people involved are known to each other," Det Snr Sgt Scott Armstrong said on Thursday.
"Police were on the scene quickly, and there is no ongoing risk to the public."
