After the altercation, the accused fled the scene.

The 31-year-old, was intercepted by police at 23rd Avenue on Palm Beach and arrested.

He has been charged with attempted murder.

“It is alleged the 31-year-old stabbed and slashed the 43-year-old man with a knife, before he was confronted by passers-by and ran from the scene,” a police statement read.

“The men are not known to each other.”

The victim was transported to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition with non-life threatening stab wounds.

Witnesses nearby described hearing a “blood curdling scream” from the bathroom as the assault unfolded.
