Port Phillip Crime Investigation Unit detectives are searching for David Perry following a stabbing in St Kilda this morning, Victoria Police say.
A warrant has been issued for the 35-year-old’s arrest for the charge of attempted murder.
It is believed a man and woman returned home to their apartment on Wellington Street when they were confronted by a man with a knife about 4am.
The offender stabbed the male victim a number of times to the upper body before the victim ran from the premises.
The victim, a 32-year-old man, was taken to hospital where he remains with non-life threatening injuries.
A 25-year-old St Kilda woman was not injured.
