A man who allegedly slashed another man in the leg with a knife during a failed carjacking in Melbourne's west was found to have ice, speed and anti-anxiety drugs, police say.

Jake Eddy, 25, was arrested after he allegedly wounded Sha Hua Huang, 33, during an attempted car theft at Hoppers Crossing about 6.30am on Wednesday.

It's alleged Eddy, from regional Muckatah, approached Mr Huang, who had parked at Hoppers Crossing railway station, and demanded he hand over his car.

But Mr Huang refused and Eddy then slashed him on the leg with a knife before fleeing, police allege.

The victim was taken to hospital and Eddy was arrested almost four hours later.

Police also allege Eddy was in possession of a flick knife and the drugs ice, speed and anti-anxiety medication Xanax, court documents show.

Eddy faced Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday over several charges, including attempted aggravated carjacking and intentionally causing injury.

He did not apply for bail and is due to return to court for a committal mention on August 8.
