A pregnant woman has reportedly been sexually assaulted as she slept in her Brisbane home.

It’s understood a man broke into the Tingalpa residence around 1.40am on Friday, crept into the bedroom and assaulted her.

Her husband is understood to have been in the bed beside her when the attack occurred.

The woman woke up and screamed, which also woke up her husband, who then chased the man around several rooms before corning him and restraining him.

Police arrived a short time later and arrested the 19-year-old man.

He was charged with two counts of enter premises with intent at night, and one count each of sexual assault and stealing.

He is due to appear in the Cleveland Magistrates Court this morning.

The 25-year-old victim was taken to hospital for minor injuries and a check-up.

  • Far out, what kind of world are we living in? Surely he was on something to do something like this – definitely not acceptable at all but really? With her partner in the bed beside her? Hope she’s OK and the baby, how scary for them all.


  • WTF? This is getting ridiculous! Where will it end??? This poor woman’s life has changed forever. Utterly unacceptable!


  • That man is one sick individual. What a scary experience.


  • How scary!! And to think the man was brazen enough to do this whilst the victims partner slept beside her!!


  • holey! that would have been creepy to wake up to a stranger in your room!


  • oh far out the poor family! that shit is lucky to be alive. the hubby showed great restraint xxx


  • That poor lady. I hope she gets some counselling


  • What a frightening ordeal to go through; in her own home too.


  • Wow this is very worrying. Hope the mum to be is ok.


  • So much about this that is appalling nd scary!


  • I cannot think of anything worse than being attacked in your own home. It must have been a very terrifying situation.


  • Omg, this is so scary. I can’t believe this could happen. I hope the mum to be is doing well.


  • What was he thinking!!!! The poor woman. Glad her partner caught him.


  • Truth really is stranger than fiction. Who would do something like this?


  • The criminal is on 2 charges of enter. That is interesting. Obviously he broke through 2 doors / windows or a combination of both. I wonder if the couple actually knew him. It’s pretty brazen of the guy when the husband is there too.
    I hope the guy didn’t infect her with any nasty germs that could damage the Mum’s health + the baby’s any more than he already has. I owuld never feel safe in that house again.
    They should lock him up and throw away the key, especially if it was premeditated. I will be surprised if it wasn’t. I wonder what he attempted to steal.
