Police are appealing for information from the public following a disorder on Taranaki Street in Wellington last night.

At about 9 pm yesterday, Saturday 25 July, Police were called to an incident where a group of up to eight people was fighting at a service station near the intersection with Cable Street.

During the incident, one person received a non-life-threatening stab wound, and several others were assaulted with weapons.

Today, Wellington Police executed several search warrants and arrested two men and one youth.

The two men, aged 18 and 21, have been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and are due to appear in Wellington District Court tomorrow.

The youth will appear in Youth Court.

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

More arrests are likely.

This incident was seen by several people, and police are urging anyone who witnessed the event which has not yet spoken to Police to come forward.

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