A man has been charged with murder following the death of a 34-year-old woman in South Auckland last night.

Police were called to a property on Noble Court, Flat Bush shortly after 10pm following reports a woman had been attacked.

The woman was found unconscious with multiple serious wounds when police arrived, Detective Inspector Tofilau Faa Va'aelua said.

The woman was transported to Middlemore Hospital, where she died from her injuries.

A man, 33, contacted police while they were still at the scene, alleging he was the offender, police say.

He was later found in Botany and brought to the Manukau police station, where he was remanded in custody.

The man was known to the victim and police are not seeking anyone else in relation to her death, Detective Inspector Faa Va'aelua said.

A post-mortem examination will take place today following the incident.

Police remain on the scene as they continue to investigate the incident and carry out a scene examination.

The man will appear in Manukau District Court this morning charged with murder.
