A man who suffered chest and facial injuries in an assault in Piopio does not want to lay a complaint, police say.

Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter said the 45-year-old had been assaulted by a group of hunters on his farm but police say he suffered the injuries at a party.

They say he returned home and then sought medical help.

The rescue helicopter landed at Piopio Domain in the early hours of Friday and flew the man to Waikato Hospital.

Police said he did not want to lay a complaint but they would be investigating.
