There's been a brazen armed robbery in the middle of the city on Tuesday morning.
A 31-year-old guy from Wantirna South walked out of a restaurant a bit after 3am.
He was then approached by two men on the corner of Lonsdale and Russell street.
They slashed him across the neck and arm, stealing his phone and car keys.
He's been taken to hospital in a non-life threatening condition.
The offenders then fled the scene on foot.
