A man has been charged with attempted murder over the stabbing of a 21-year-old man in Papakura last week.

A 24-year-old man was this morning arrested by Counties Manukau detectives who were investigating the multiple stabbing. The man will appear in the Papakura District Court today.

The investigation team also found a knife near the scene which is believed to be the weapon used in the 2.30am attack at Rosehill on Friday.

"The quick arrest is due largely to information received from the public and police thank those who have come forward for their assistance," Detective Inspector Dave Lynch said.

The victim remains in a critical, but stable condition in Middlemore Hospital.

The investigation is ongoing and police are still appealing to anyone who saw the incident or had knowledge of it to contact them.

Papakura police can be called on 09 295 0200 or information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
