A man has surrendered himself to police after another man died following an assault in a remote Northern Territory community.

Officers were called to the community in central Australia on Saturday.

Two men, aged 18 and 19, were in a fight when the younger man allegedly assaulted the other with an edged weapon, police said.

The 18-year-old later surrendered himself to detectives who went to the remote community to investigate.

Police arrested the man and are questioning him.
