Three Karori men have been arrested and charged in relation to a weekend baseball bat attack that left a man who went to his screaming neighbour's aid with facial injuries.

Police said they have charged a 19-year-old Karori man who allegedly struck a Montgomery Ave resident in the face with a baseball bat after her rushed to protect his female neighbour. 

He will appear in Wellington District Court on Friday to face a charge of injuring with intent to injure and threatening to kill.
