Patel was captured by 7 News talking to South Australia politics following the incident on Gouger St in the CBD. A woman got arrested after a man ended up in the Royal Adelaide Hospital after allegedly being stabbed in the chest. 

At about 8.45 pm on Monday, police attended a street fight between a man and a woman on Gouger St. Police say that the pair were known to each other and this was not a random attack. 

The 32-year-old man was from Glengowrie and was treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to the hospital with not-so-serious injuries. Police arrested the 34-year-old Park Holme woman and charged her with aggravated assault causing harm. She was refused bail and will face the Adelaide Magistrates Court.
