In the first incident, a 42-year-old man was stabbed at an address on Oxford Terrace, Avalon, at around 7.30pm.

A 38-year-old woman was arrested and appeared in the Hutt Valley District Court this morning.
Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to this matter, however, request anyone who may have witnessed or heard the incident to come forward.
In the second incident, a 36-year-old man was seriously assaulted at an address on Delaney Drive, Stokes Valley.
