The altercation took place at the coastal town over the weekend where the victim, a man in his 50s, ended up in hospital after being injured while trying to protect his son.

Police claim the offender, a 34-year-old Apollo Bay man, was armed with a large kitchen knife and metal baton when he went to the address to allegedly confront another man.

The court heard the man was met by the parents of his intended target, who asked him to leave the address.

The father of the intended target suffered serious cuts to his hand after allegedly attempting to disarm the attacker.

The attacker was remanded in custody on the weekend facing charges including assault after facing the Geelong Magistrates Court on Monday.

The mans court hearing was adjourned until next month where he will appear before the Colac Magistrates Court.

He has been refused bail and will remain in custody until his next court appearance on October 12.
