DETROIT (WXYZ) — A man has been charged with assault after he allegedly stabbed a security guard in front of a coney island restaurant in downtown Detroit.

The incident happened Sept. 7 at 1 a.m. in the 100 block of W. Lafayette.

According to a release, David Michael Golze, 21, of St. Clair Shores, allegedly stabbed a 31-year-old Royal Oak man who was working as a security guard.

There was an argument between a group of guards that escalated into a fight outside of the restaurant. That's when Golze allegedly stabbed the victim. When the victim realized he was bleeding, he flagged down Detroit police officers who took him to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Golze is charged with assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, two counts of felonious assault and assault and battery.
