A 49-year-old Aboriginal woman was stabbed to death in front of her three children in Melbourne's south-east last week.

Victoria Police confirmed that officers attended an address at Whitby Way in Seaford near Frankston at around 4.40pm on Tuesday, where a woman was found with stab wounds.

Paramedics arrived within minutes, and worked on the woman, however she died at the scene.

Channel Nine reported that neighbours heard yelling moments before the 49-year-old woman came running from her home into the street.

"She was yelling my name, just like 'Mick, call the cops'," a neighbour named Michael told media.

A 44-year-old man has been charged with murder and is set to face court in June.

Friends and family of the woman took to Facebook to express their condolences over her death.

"This goes out to a very special friend ... of her passing, I was only just told that she has passed away, my condolence to her family R. I. P my friend until we meet again, sad to hear that she has gone. I only just got an inbox from her the other day and now I hear a good friend has gone," one friend wrote.

"R.I.P ... so unfair u were taken way 2 soon love and hugs to ur beautiful children xoxoxo," said another.

Both the man and woman cannot be named for legal reasons.
