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.
