A man is in hospital after what Invercargill police say was a serious and unprovoked assault.

One is described as a Maori or Polynesian man in his early 20s, of stocky build and with dark shaved hair.

The others is a female aged 18 to 22 and wearing grey clothing.

The pair are believed to have come from the corner of Tweed Street and Nith Street.
