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

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.
