A 22-year-old man charged over a knife attack in Maryborough has been remanded in custody.
A 19-year-old man suffered a wound to the face when he was slashed with a knife on Sunday morning.
He is in a stable condition in hospital.
Detective Grant Allan told the Bendigo Magistrates Court, Scott Pearson had admitted to the attack the next day.
But the court heard he has not entered a plea.
Detective Allan said Pearson did not know the alleged victim but became aggressive when the man tried to stop Pearson’s partner fighting with another woman.
Pearson is charged with intentionally causing serious injury.
He was denied bail and the matter will return to court in June.
