UPDATED, 3.22pm: A man who was stabbed in the back at Coolangatta early Sunday morning was out celebrating his 30th birthday.

The man was waiting for a taxi with a friend on Griffith St when two other men approached them and an argument started on Sunday morning just after midnight (Qld time).

Gold Coast Police Detective Acting Inspector Simon Garrett said it appeared to be a "cowardly" attack.

"We can't see any provocation in this incident," Det Insp Garrett said.

"It doesn't appear that any demand for money was made."

Det Insp Garrett said a wallet was lost during the scuffle.

"We will be looking at CCTV in the area," he said.

The stabbed man was transported to the Tweed Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"The victim was helped out by his mate," Det Insp Garrett said.

Police are still seeking information with both men fleeing the scene and were last seen at foot on Lanham St.

The first man is described as being Caucasian in appearance, about 178cm tall with dark hair and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and black three-quarter length shorts.

The second man is described as being Caucasian in appearance, about 180cm tall with dark hair and was last seen wearing a white shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information about the stabbing should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
