Solomon Islands detectives are calling for the public's help after a couple were hospitalised with serious stab wounds, after being attacked near Honiara early on Sunday.

Police says the Chinese man and a woman were at their home at around two am, when they were attacked by three men using stones and knives.

The victims are reported to be in stable but serious conditions at the National Referral Hospital in Honiara.

Senior Sergeant Richard Falasi says there have been no arrests yet and police would encourage any member of the public with information about the attacks to come forward.
