A 30-year-old man was stabbed during a violent confrontation in the Wellington suburb of Karori.

The incident happened at 11:15am this morning in Victory Ave, senior Sergeant Marc Clausen of police central communications said.

''There had been an altercation between two males outside the address which resulted in one of the males receiving a minor stab wound.''

The alleged offender ran away, and was found 20 minutes later hiding in a nearby garage.

It was not yet clear what led to the stabbing, Mr Clausen said.

Wellington police are investigating the incident, and would like to talk to anyone who saw what happened.
