A second man has been charged over a brutal weekend assault that left a man in critical condition in hospital.

Police this afternoon announced they had arrested a second 21-year-old male in relation to the fight at a party in Papakura on Saturday night.

The victim, a 30-year-old man found lying unconscious in the street, has undergone surgery but remains in a critical condition in hospital, police said.

One man was arrested this morning.

Initial reports were that the victim had been stabbed in the head, however further inquiries indicated that he had been hit in the head with a heavy object during a fight.

Police said they were called to an incident in Rollerson St, Papakura, where a group was fighting with knives, sticks and rocks.

When they arrived about 8.20pm they found 11 people there and the man lying on the ground.

The fight was believed to have broken out between a group of people who were holding a party and persons from a neighbouring address.
