A man has been charged with murder after another man was left for dead in a vicious daylight street brawl in Melbourne.

The 34-year-old victim was found lying on Victoria Street in Carlton, in the city’s inner north, with mortal wounds following a violent attack between a group of men at 6.15pm on Friday.

He was taken to hospital and later died, prompting a search for the killer by homicide detectives.

On Saturday night, a 58-year-old handed himself into Moonee Ponds police station.

A witness named Chikondi (pictured) said the street was 'completely empty' when he walked by, aside from two police officers.
