Pregnant woman stabbed multiple times by teen in Sydney home invasion

A pregnant woman remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition after being stabbed multiple times in the abdomen and chest after disturbing a 14-year-old intruder in her northern Sydney home.

The 33-year-old woman, who is reportedly seven months' pregnant, was attacked when she confronted the teenage boy in her Mt Colah home about on Thursday evening.

She managed to stagger to her neighbour's place after the incident, while the boy fled the scene.

Neighbours have told the Nine Network they heard the woman's scream during the terrifying incident.

She was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital, where she remains in a serious but stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman told AAP on Friday.

About an hour after the incident on Thursday night, police arrested the teen at a nearby home.

He is awaiting surgery under police guard at Hornsby Hospital after suffering hand wounds.

It is expected the boy will be charged later on Friday.
