Two attackers are on the run and a man is in hospital with multiple stab wounds after a fight broke out in Melbourne's south.

A man in his 60s was stabbed multiple times during an altercation with two men on Chaucer Street in St Kilda about midday on Monday, police say.

The two offenders fled before officers arrived.

Police on Monday collected evidence near the crime scene, removing sunglasses and a jacket and photographing a parked white van.

Detective Senior Sergeant Damian Jackson told the media police are confident they will catch those responsible.

"There's a couple of witnesses that we've identified here but we are appealing for witnesses today to come forward," he said.

"We're confident that ... we'll be able to identify who is responsible."

The victim was transported to hospital in a critical but stable condition.
