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.
