Three men stabbed in Te Puke



Three men are recovering from stab wounds, including one man who is in intensive care, following an incident in the Bay of Plenty on Friday night.

Police were called to a house in Te Puke, east of Tauranga, just before 10pm where they found the three men with stab wounds.

Another man, who had been beaten with a hockey stick, was found at a second house, Tauranga police said.

All four men were taken to Tauranga Hospital. Two have since been discharged, one is in a general ward and another is in a stable condition in intensive care.

One of the men, a 35-year-old fruit picker, has been charged with assault. He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear in Tauranga District Court on Monday.

Further charges are likely.
