One man has been charged and another arrested over a stabbing in Melbourne’s CBD on Friday morning.
The fight began when a 24-year-old man was refused entry to Queen Street nightclub CQ around 4.30am, Detective Sergeant Wayne Dean told Fairfax Media.
After being denied entry, the South Melbourne man produced a knife and slashed one of the bouncers, inflicting a minor cut.
A group of up to 10 bouncers are alleged to have chased the man along Queen Street before he was stabbed with his own knife near the corner of Collins and Queen streets and then carried back to Little Collins Street where he was left bleeding.
The 24-year-old suffered serious injuries after being stabbed in the abdomen and was taken to The Alfred hospital in a stable condition.
A bystander who filmed the altercation was also allegedly assaulted and had his phone taken.
Remzi Orcanoglu, 36, has been charged with intentionally causing serious injury, robbery and other assault-related offences.
The Lalor man faced an out-of-sessions court hearing overnight. Mr Orcanoglu appeared before Chief Magistrate Peter Lauritsen on Saturday. He was remanded and will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on April 7.
A second man was also arrested and remains in custody but no charges have been laid.
