A 29-year-old has allegedly threatened a man with a knife in a bizarre confrontation in Hervey Bay.
The victim heard a man yell 'oi' from the dark before he was approached by a 29-year-old who was allegedly wielding a knife.
Hervey Bay Police Sergeant Darryn Morris said the victim yelled 'what' and soon after, the man holding the knife told him to leave because s**t is going to get f***ed up.
Sgt Morris said the victim and three others ran to their car before calling police.
The dog squad led police to a home in Point Vernon where a man was charged and taken into police custody.
The incident happened at Gatakers Bay at 10.20pm on Monday.
