It's alleged Mr Austin ran away laughing after he stabbed the 19-year-old in the chest at about 9pm on May 4.

The victim was left naked and bleeding in the stairwell of the apartment block before a neighbour rang Triple-0. 

The teenager remains at St George Hospital with serious chest injuries after undergoing emergency surgery last week.
