Six cars passed a man bleeding to death on the side of the road in Auckland on New Year's Day.

Papatoetoe man Nathan Albert, 27, was found with stab wounds just after 4am by the side of Pilkington Rd, Panmure, where a member of the public unsuccessfully tried to revive him.

Police say the six cars passed through the area about 4.10am and they would like to speak to the drivers.

Panmure resident Peter Job, 38, has been charged with assaulting Albert. That charge is expected to be elevated next time he appears in court and Detective Inspector Mark Benefield confirmed police were not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.

After an exhaustive search police eventually found a knife - which they believe was used to kill Albert - in a hedge near the scene.

Police previously called for the taxi driver who picked up Albert in town and dropped him off in Panmure to come forward.

Just over a week ago, the driver contacted police.

Anyone with information is asked to call 0800 4 TERRI (0800 4 83774) or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
