DETROIT (WWJ) - A 21-year-old St. Clair Shores man is facing attempted murder and other charges in a stabbing in downtown Detroit.

It happened at around 1 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, outside the popular American Coney Island, in the 100 block of W. Lafayette Blvd.

According to investigators, the victim -- a 31-year-old Royal Oak man -- was working as a security guard in front of the restaurant when he got into an argument with a group of people.

The dispute escalated into a physical fight, during which it's alleged that David Michael Golze produced a knife and stabbed the guard. 

When the victim discovered he was bleeding, he flagged down Detroit police officers and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. While he survived the attack, his condition is not known at this time. His name was not released.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Golze with the following: Assault with Intent to Murder, Assault with Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm, two counts of Felonious Assault and Assault and Battery.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon in 36th District Court.
