A woman is in hospital with head and internal injuries following an assault by a group of people in the Northern Territory.

Police found a 31-year-old woman with injuries consistent with an assault outside a block of units in Palmerston around 1am on Thursday.

She was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital where she is in a serious but stable condition and police are appealing for witnesses.

"A 29-year-old man was arrested at the scene and remains in custody at this time," Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Chris Ruzsicska said.
