Dev Patel is said to have tried to break up a fight in which a man was stabbed

Dev Patel is said to have tried to break up a fight in which a man was stabbed in the chest.

The British actor is pictured talking to police following the incident on Monday night in Adelaide, Australia.

A representative for the actor told local 7NEWS.com.au that Patel acted “on his natural instincts” but there was “no heroism” in the situation.

South Australian Police said officers were called around 8:45pm after reports of a man and a woman fighting in the street.

The pair continued to fight inside a nearby service station, where witnesses tried to break up the altercation, before the woman allegedly stabbed the man in the chest.

A 32-year-old Glengowrie man was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, although his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

A spokesperson told 7NEWS.com.au: “Dev acted on his natural instincts to try to de-escalate the situation and break up the fight.

“Thankfully the team managed to do that, and they remained at the site to make sure that the police and eventually the ambulance arrived.”

They added: “This particular incident highlights a larger systemic problem that marginalized members of society are not being treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

“Hopefully the same level of media attention this story is getting (just because Dev, as a celebrity, got involved) can be the catalyst for legislators to have compassion in identifying lasting solutions to help not only the individuals involved but the community at large. “

Patel lives in Adelaide with his girlfriend, actress Tilda Cobham-Hervey, who starred with him in the 2018 film Hotel Mumbai.
