A 27-year-old man remains in an induced coma after an assault in Wainuiomata - 22km northeast of Wellington - early yesterday.

Four men were involved in a fight outside the Caltex service station in The Strand just after midnight, police said.

One was left with serious injuries and was taken to Wellington Hospital in a critical condition.

Two men left the scene of the fight at high speed in a blue car.

Police said this morning two Lower Hutt men were arrested last night and charged with assault. Nobody else was being sought by police.

Anyone with information should contact Hutt Valley police on (04) 560 2600 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
