Footage of the attack was taken by Zaky Mallah who later posted it to Snapchat.

"I saw this young lad, with a knife full of blood," he told Nine News.

"The bloke just stabbed someone and he was running away from the bloke that he stabbed, running towards me. I took out my phone to snap it and I thought he was going to come after me and stab me."

 

A second 17-year-old has now been arrested over the attack.

He faces charges of wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and common assault.

He is due to face a Children's Court today.
