A man has been charged over the alleged stabbing of a woman near a shopping centre bus stop in Melbourne’s southeast.

Police allege a 34-year-old Croydon man stabbed a woman with an edged-weapon near a bus stop on Overland Drive in Narre Warren at 5.20pm on Sunday.

The 35-year-old woman was treated by paramedics and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police began a search shortly after arriving on the scene near the Westfield Fountain Gate shopping centre and the man was arrested in Hallam shortly after.

He has been charged with intentionally causing injury, possessing a controlled weapon and theft.

He will appear at Dandenong Magistrates Court on Monday.
