A teen will appear in the Waitakere District Court next week after allegedly attacking a Thai woman in Henderson.

Police said the 17-year-old was arrested on Friday and would face charges of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault in relation to the incident. He has also been charged with possession of meth/utensils.

A police spokeswoman said a woman had earlier required treatment to a "laceration" to her hand after an incident.

A Thai community spokesman told the Herald the victim was a visitor from Thailand, and was currently being cared for by family members after being discharged from Middlemore Hospital.
