A man has been charged over the stabbing of a local worker at Southbank Promenade on Friday, February 24.

He was later interviewed by police and charged with numerous offences including intentionally causing serious injury, causing serious injury and reckless conduct causing serious injury.

A 24-year-old man sustained non-life threatening abdominal injuries during the incident.

As the victim attempted to intervene, the man produced a knife and stabbed the victim in the left side of his abdomen.

Following the stabbing, the offender ran off along Yarra Promenade while the victim approached a near-by parking attendant for help.

He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
