The injured man, 43, remains in a critical condition after being stabbed in his home in Paeroa last night.

Detective Sergeant Terri Wilson said the man was stabbed following an argument and his injuries include a punctured lung.

Emergency services were called to the Bush Street home just after 11pm.

Police said the stabbing happened during a fight between three to four people at the house.

A man appeared in Hamilton District Court this morning charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, Mr Wilson said.
