Emergency services were called to the hair salon on Mimosa Road at 12.40pm on Friday, with the man stumbling out onto the street and collapsing.
The man reportedly suffered a single stab wound to the right side of his chest.
Shoppers and business owners in nearby shops heard screams and walked outside to see the victim on the floor.
‘I just heard somebody screaming, I walked out and I saw him stabbed on the floor,’ Shayna’s cafe owner Ninos Tooma told The Daily Telegraph.
Witnesses reported a man on a motorcycle with L-plates had pulled up outside the salon about 12.40pm and entered the shop, before dumping the bike.
The victim was in cardiac arrest on the pavement outside the salon when emergency services arrived at the scene.
A large section of the road was blocked off as police began investigating the incident
