A man is in a serious but stable condition after a stabbing incident in central Auckland.
Police and paramedics were called to Dundonald Street in Eden Terrace shortly before 1am on Thursday.
Newshub cameras captured multiple emergency vehicles and police officers as they investigated different locations of interest. A Newshub reporter said blood was visible at the scene.
In a statement on Thursday, Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Brand confirmed the man received a single stab wound.
"The male was taken to Auckland Hospital with serious injuries. He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition," Brand said.
Later on Thursday, police released an update saying no other parties were involved in the incident.
"Police have spoken with the male and following this we can now advise that we are not seeking anyone in connection with this incident," Brand said in a statement.
"We are aware this incident may have been of concern to the community, but we would like to reassure them that no other parties are involved."
A scene examination will be carried out on Thursday and the man is recovering in hospital.
