A man has been charged with attempted murder after a woman was stabbed repeatedly at a property north of Auckland on Saturday night.
Kumar Anal Kamal, also known as Anal Kumar, a 42-year-old welder from Fiji, was remanded in custody when he appeared in North Shore District Court yesterday.
Detective Sergeant Scott Armstrong said police were called to the Orewa address about 8pm Saturday where they found a woman with a number of stab wounds.
She was taken to Auckland Hospital, where she is recovering after undergoing surgery.
Kamal was located at the address and charged with attempted murder. A weapon thought to have been involved was also recovered at the scene.
Mr Armstrong said Kamal was known to the victim.
He will appear again next month.
