A 20-year-old woman was allegedly slashed with an axe by her ex-partner during peak hour in Brisbane yesterday.

He was on the third level when he allegedly brandished an axe and attacked the woman, slashing her several times before attempting to strangle her, police said.

Two men were returning to their cars at the time and managed to separate the pair.

The men then pinned the man to the ground until police arrived.

Witness Terry Rossitto told 9News they "heard very loud screams."

"Thankfully one of our staff that was leaving the car park sounded the horn and immediately people ran down and heard screaming and were able to diffuse (the situation)," Bruce Watson said.

Mr Bardack appeared at Brisbane Magistrates Court charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, choking and enter premises with intent.

It's understood he had been in a relationship with the victim, which soured.

He didn't apply for bail.
