A man has been rushed to hospital in critical condition and another taken into custody after an assault at an Auckland dairy this morning.

Police responded to reports of a stabbing at a dairy on New Windsor Rd just after 10.40am.

“A number of people in the store at the time intervened and managed to apprehend and restrain the offender,” Auckland City CIB Detective Inspector Glenn Baldwin said.

“They have also provided assistance to the injured man as well as a secondary victim, a woman, who also sustained injuries.”

Both have been transported to Auckland Hospital, with the man in critical condition and the woman stable.

A 24-year-old man has been taken into custody.

Police remain at the scene.

A person told NZME he had been called and told his brother had been stabbed.

A block of shops including the dairy have been cordoned off, while Auckland Transport said New Windsor Rd between Maioro St and Mulgan St had been closed.
