Pregnant 16-year-old girl allegedly kicked in the stomach during a violent home invasion in Sydney’s south.

Police said they were called to home on Waratah Street in Cronulla about 2.30am, after reports a group of people had forced their way into the address and assaulted people inside.

A 37-year-old man was allegedly hit in the head with a hammer during the alleged attack.

“Three occupants within that unit have been assaulted by these persons and some property has been taken from there,” Inspector Gary Ford from Miranda LAC said.

“One of the male occupants has suffered a number of head injuries as a result of being struck by a mallet around the head, and he’s been conveyed to St George Hospital for treatment.” The pregnant girl was taken to Sutherland Hospital for treatment.

Police believe the girl is a friend of the nephew of the 37-year-old man who was assaulted at the home, however the other alleged victims are unrelated, ABC reports.

A short time later, police arrested seven people – six at Gymea and one at Woolooware.

Police said a crime scene has been established and they are continuing to investigate the incident.

  • Home invasions are a frightening and horrible crime.


  • There is far too much evil in this world. I hope all the victims are ok and babyis not affected by this callous act


  • This is shocking. I hope mum and bub are ok. Is it kush me or has the world gone crazy


  • Not only have they injured a pregnant lady they may also have injured her unborn baby.
    A hideous crime which never should have happened. Only cowards stoop that “low” I hope those responsible are charged with attempted murder for each victim, not just assault or similar charges.


  • wow i hope that they are ok especially that little baby!


  • Poor girl. Let’s hope nothing happened to her baby.


  • That is a shocking home invasion. So horrible to read and truly unbelievable. I hope those affected recover.


  • My goodness… these poor people, one thing to be broken into and have stuff taken and another then to be assulted…
    Wishing all of them a speedy recovery.
