MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Five people, including the suspected offender, were injured in a stabbing attack in Dunedin, New Zealand, on the South Island's southeast coast, the national police said on Monday.

The incident took place in a Dunedin supermarket earlier in the day. Two people among those injured were reportedly the supermarket's employees. Three victims are in critical condition and will undergo surgery later on Monday, police told reporters.

"Upon arrival, police located four people with serious stab-related injuries.
