A man left fighting for his life after a brutal assault had been hit in the head with a child's scooter, police have confirmed.

Counties Manukau police found the 30-year-old man lying unconscious in a Papakura street on Saturday night after they responded to reports of people fighting outside a house party.

His injuries were so severe police initially thought he had been stabbed in the head.

The man remains in a serious condition in Auckland Hospital.

Two men have appeared in the Papakura District Court this week charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Royce Grace, 21, appeared on Monday and will reappear in January.

A second man, who is also 21, appeared yesterday. He was denied bail and will reappear early next year.
