According to reports, he and his girlfriend, Hotel Mumbai co-star Tilda Cobham-Hervey, are currently vacationing in South Australia. Police were summoned to the scene before 8.45 p.m. because of allegations of a couple fighting before they seemed to debrief with Dev.
Paramedics attended to the 32-year-old at the site and then took him to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
The woman has been detained and is facing charges of serious assault. The 34-year-old man from Park Holme in the southwest of the city was turned down for bail so he could show up in court on Tuesday.
According to the police, the two are acquainted and the attack was not random.
