A 34-year-old man will appear in Dunedin District Court today after allegedly stabbing a family member in Mornington last night.

Senior Sergeant Kelvin Lloyd, of Dunedin, said the man would be charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm as a result of the 8.45pm incident.

The weapon had been recovered, he said.

A St John spokeswoman said the victim was taken to Dunedin Hospital with moderate injuries.
