Detectives hope video from a Noble Park fight will identify the man who inflicted life-threatening stab wounds on a Berwick man.
Greater Dandenong CIU detectives released the CCTV footage on Thursday 13 October, which shows a fight breaking out, vehicles they want to identify and people who could assist with inquiries.
They’ve been told the 24-year-old victim and four friends arrived at a party on Ian Street about 4am on Saturday 1 October.
The victim and one friend walked to another car on Robert Street, a short distance from the party, and saw a dark-coloured Holden Commodore sedan, possibly an early 2000s model, drive up and park next to them.
The pair started walking back towards the party on Ian Street, and on Mons Parade heard a person yelling from behind them.
They turned and saw the driver and front passenger from the Commodore, one armed with a knife.
Police allege the pair threatened the victim and his friend, who tried to reason with the attackers before running back towards the party.
Police have released this video.
The victim tripped and fell and the men assaulted him, one stabbing him to the chest, stomach and upper leg several times.
Police said several people then shielded the victim from his attackers who then fled on foot along Mons Parade before driving off in the Commodore.
The victim received life-threatening injuries and friends took him to Dandenong Hospital.
The alleged attackers are described as African in appearance and aged in their early 20s.
Police are appealing for anyone with information on the stabbing to come forward.
In particular, investigators would like to speak to two men who had a conversation with the Commodore driver shortly after the stabbing.
They would also like to speak to the occupants of a light-coloured SUV seen on Ian Street at the time of the incident.
