Police say the offender, armed with a knife, approached a man who had parked his car at the Hoppers Crossing train station car park just after 6.30am, and made demands for his car.
When the 33-year-old Glenroy man refused to hand over his car, he received a slash wound to the leg, for which he was later transported to hospital.
The carjacker, who the victim described as 170cm tall with a thin build and wearing a black hooded jumper, ran from the scene.
Transit Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating and believe the offender had spoken to commuters in the car park prior to the incident.
