The security guard received injuries to his upper arm before the offender ran off towards Stuart Terrace where he was located by police and arrested.
The man was charged with one count each of Possess, Carry or Use Controlled Weapon and Assault a person who suffers harm. He has been bailed to appear before the Alice Springs Local Court on August 18, 2020.
