Police have arrested and charged teenager over a horror stabbing at a lingerie bar in Sydney’s CBD on Thursday.

Officers said the 19-year-old man had left his ID at the venue and was arrested a day later at Green Valley Police Station.

He was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, affray and wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

He will front Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.

Police allege a group of five men were at the Concourse Bar in Wynyard about 6pm on Thursday when an argument broke out before the 19-year-old allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the 34-year-old employee.

All five men left the scene, police said.

The staffer was treated at the scene by paramedics before he was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition with stab wounds to his back and side. He is now in a serious but stable condition.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan said the man had suffered two collapsed lungs, which could have been fatal if paramedics hadn’t arrived within minutes.

When first responders began treating him, he was awake and saying he was struggling to breathe.

“The intensive care paramedic on scene managed to decompress and reinflate the lungs, allowing the gentleman to breathe again,” Inspector Buchanan said.

Detective Acting Superintendent Paul Dunstan said the man was “still not in a good way” but had stabilised on Friday.

“It was an extremely serious incident,” he said.

A short time after the incident, police found three of the alleged offenders nearby.

Three men were taken Surry Hills police station where a 31-year-old Carlton man was charged with assault and affray. He was refused bail and will appear at Central Local Court on Friday.

A 29-year-old man from Narwee was charged with affray. He was granted conditional bail and will appear before Downing Centre Local Court later this month.

A 34-year-old man, from Ridgewood in Western Australia, was issued a criminal infringement notice for offensive language.

Concourse Bar licensee Rob Di Francesco declined to comment.

Another person who appeared to have been caught in the ensuing melee and got a cut to his forehead was also treated by paramedics.

Superintendent Dunstan did not confirm whether the man was another alleged offender, a patron or an employee of the bar.

Police are still searching for a fifth man.
