Sunday morning mayhem in a Hawke's Bay suburb has sparked a police and ambulance call-out.
A local witness understood a stabbing in Flaxmere near Hastings happened at about 9.30am.
"I think a stabbing happened. The victim is okay," the witness said.
He said an altercation "between a lot of young people of gang affiliations" happened on Sunday morning.
Police said reports of assault and ongoing disorder were received at 9.35am.
The incident happened near the intersection of Flaxmere Ave and Margate Ave, police said.
Contrary to the witness reports, police did not believe the incident was gang-related.
Police and the ambulance service were sent to the area shortly before 10am.
Police later said one person was hospitalised with superficial injuries.
A St John spokeswoman said an injured person left the scene.
Last month, six people were arrested and two stabbed when 14 people brawled in Flaxmere.
Six people arrested in that November fight were referred to Youth Aid.
