Two critically injured men are facing charges after a "disorder" incident in West Auckland overnight.

Officers responded to reports of a "disorder" at an address on Scowns Way, Glendene just before 2am on Friday. 

It was reported that two people had been injured and upon arrival, police located the pair known to each other with critical injuries.

Both were transported to hospital and are now in a stable condition with injuries not believed to be life-threatening, the spokesperson said.

A Hato Hone St John spokesperson said staff were notified of the incident at 2.00am Friday and sent two ambulances, two rapid response units and two operational managers to the scene.

"Our ambulance officers treated and transported two patients in a critical condition to Auckland City Hospital," the spokesperson said.

The two men, aged 25 and 37, have both been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and are due to appear in the Waitākere District Court later on Friday.

"As the matter is now before the Court, police are limited in further comment, however, we can advise there is no wider risk to the public and police are not seeking anyone else in relation to this incident," the spokesperson said.
