Stepping between the couple, Dev Patel resolved the matter by protecting both people from each other. The man was stabbed in the chest and had to be taken away but will survive as the injury is not lethal. The Chappie actor emerged unharmed and held his ground without further conflict until the police and ambulance arrived and the matter was sorted out by the proper authorities.
