Five people have been arrested after an alleged group fight in Wellington where one person was stabbed and several others assaulted with weapons.

Detective senior sergeant Kevan Verry said the disorder incident on Taranaki St in Te Aro occurred about 9pm Saturday.

Police were called to the incident, where a group of up to eight people were fighting at the BP service station near the intersection with Cable St.

One person received a non-life threatening stab wound, while several others were attacked with weapons, Verry said.

Police executed several search warrants on Sunday and arrested two men and one youth.

The men, 18 and 21, have been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and are due to appear in Wellington District Court on Monday, while the youth will appear in Youth Court.

Two women, both 18, were arrested at the time of the incident on Saturday and were bailed to appear later this week on charges of fighting in a public place and possession of an offensive weapon.

More arrests were likely, police said.

“This incident was seen by a number of people and we urge anyone who witnessed the event who has not yet spoken to police to come forward,” Verry said.

Information can be provided by calling 105 and quoting file number 200725/2726 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
