Two people have been arrested in relation to a central Wellington assault that left the victim needing surgery to align his broken jaw.

Two 21-year-old men are appearing in the Wellington District Court this afternoon charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm over the November 2 incident.

The 22-year-old victim needed a number of surgeries to fix his jaw after being attacked on Blair St.

"It is pleasing to achieve some resolution for our victim in this matter," said Detective Senior Sergeant Warwick McKee.


"We will continue to support our victim and provide welfare to him throughout the investigation."

Police can also confirm that they have identified all five persons they sought after the attack.

"We are speaking to the people that were involved in this matter and the investigation is ongoing."
