A woman has been arrested and charged in relation to an incident that left a man with serious injuries near Christchurch.

The 24-year-old has been charged with wounding with intent and is due to appear in the Christchurch District Court today.

Emergency services and police were called to a property on Arundel-Rakaia Gorge Rd near Methven – about an hour inland from Christchurch – about 1pm yesterday.

The man had suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital.

Police said a woman believed to be involved in the incident was found in a vehicle on Main St later.
