A 20-year-old man has been arrested after a violent incident in South Auckland overnight that left a man in a critical condition in hospital.

Police said the arrested man had been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, following a serious assault on a 48-year-old man in the suburb of Clendon Park.

Police and ambulance were called about 12.30am.
