NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/12/2016

A woman is in a critical condition after she was stabbed in the neck in Christchurch.

The 46-year-old, who was found in a home at New Brighton, has had surgery and is in a stable condition, police say.

A 68-year-old man, who was known to the victim, has been charged with grievous bodily harm and is expected to appear in Christchurch District Court later on Friday.

Investigators are at the scene but say the alleged offender possibly changed clothes before police arrived and they are asking nearby residents to check their properties for discarded items.
