Westmere party stabbing: Arrest made over alleged 'champagne flute' attack

A man has been arrested and charged over an alleged champagne flute stabbing incident in the Auckland suburb of Westmere.

It's understood a party-goer was taken to hospital after he was stabbed in the neck with a champagne flute at a 40th birthday party on Rawene Ave on April 16. 

Police said on Wednesday a 53-year-old man has been arrested and charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm over the incident, which took place at a multi-million dollar home that has won a major architectural award. 

The 53-year-old will appear in the Auckland District Court on Wednesday afternoon. 

Officers say they are unable to comment further on the matter as it is now before the court.
