A woman with stab wounds carrying a baby ran down an Auckland street screaming for help, according to people who went to help her.

Police say a 31-year-old woman remains in a serious condition in Middlemore Hospital after an incident in Willis Road, Papakura on Friday afternoon.

She was initially reported to be critically injured but in an update police said the injuries are no longer believed to be life-threatening.

A 16-year-old male is also receiving treatment in Middlemore Hospital for moderate injuries and the baby is uninjured and is being cared for by relatives.

The woman and man know each other and no one else was involved in the incident.

A scene examination at an address on Willis Road is under way and will continue on Saturday.

A man who helped the woman told the New Zealand Herald she had stab wounds on her face, head, hands and back, but the baby was uninjured.

Bystanders used nappies from a nearby dairy to try and stem the bleeding.
