A heavily pregnant woman was shockingly stabbed six times during a violent home invasion.

The victim, aged 33, was believed to have disturbed an intruder inside her Mt Colah home at about 8.50pm.

A teenage boy, aged 14, stabbed the woman in her abdomen, chest and arm before fleeing the scene, reports 9 news.

She managed to attract the attention of neighbours, who called emergency services to the scene.

The woman was then rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital by ambulance, where she remains in a stable condition.

Police said she was several months pregnant and the condition of her unborn child is not known.

The 14-year-old was arrested at a home on a nearby street about an hour after the attack.

He was taken to Hornsby Hospital for treatment for wounds to his hands. He is awaiting surgery and remains under police guard.

  • This happened while I was staying in an outback area. I hope Mum and unborn baby / baby are both OK


  • This is sickening and so very sad. Sad for the woman and her unborn child but sad also for the 14 yo. What have we as a society created, that children think this behaviour is okay and acceptable.


  • What is this country coming to? Children of 14 used to be respectful to older persons – to stab someone is just so wrong, and more especially so a pregnant lady. Do hope mum and bub will both be OK, but what she is going through should never have happened.


  • Poor lady I hope she is ok


  • Terrible that a boy so young would resort to such violence… and a terrible experience for his victim. I hope she and her baby are okay.


  • The teenager was refused bail. Luckily. And for now both the young woman and her baby are in stable conditions.


  • Have been following this story on the news – it’s absolutely shocking! I hope his age doesn’t prevent a suitable punishment! Hope mum and baby fully recover.


  • Heard this report on the morning news – shocking!


  • Imagine a 14 year old kid doing this ! My daughter is 14 yr old…
    Hope and pray mum & baby are fine !

    • Any age is shocking but 14 just is so sad!


  • Frightening to think that kids this young are resorting to such violent methods. Makes me wonder what made him desperate enough to try to Rob a house on his own in the first place. Hope the baby and mum are doing okay.


  • Thinking of the mum and I hope all is ok with the baby


  • Need to get that kid in jail quick before he does something far worse. Maybe they could knock some sense into him and turn his life around. If I hear he only got a slap on the hand with community service and house arrest I’ll lose it..


  • This is crazy what is this 14 year old doing! Hope the Mum is ok


  • Gosh!! That’s terrible. Let’s hope the injuries are not fatal to the baby. At 14 years old???? So sad!! :-(


  • Disgusting behaviour, lock them up! I hope mum and bub are ok
