Queensland Police will allege the 29-year-old man stabbed the other man in the face before using his hands to strike the chest of a 24-year-old woman who tried to help.

The 23-year-old man and 24-year-old woman left the room and went down to the lobby where they were met by emergency services.

Paramedics treated the man before transporting him in a stable condition to the Gold Coast University Hospital.

Officers contained the unit block and arrested the 29-year-old man in a unit.

He has subsequently been charged with one count each of grievous bodily harm, common assault and breach of bail.

He’ll be in Southport Court later today.
