Teen stabbed in horror home invasion
Police are on the hunt for a group of men behind a terrifying home invasion in Sydney's northwest.
Seven men were armed with an axe, knife, hammer and gun when they broke into a home on Purser Avenue, Castle Hill, about 1am Thursday.
They threatened six occupants before stabbing an 18-year-old man in the stomach several times.
Officers were told the men demanded property from the people inside.
A seventh occupant, a 17-year-old boy, was in the backyard at the time and was smashed across the head with a hammer.
The group stole six mobile phones before damaging the home and fleeing the scene in a car.
Paramedics treated the injured men at the scene before they were rushed to Westmead Hospital. Their conditions are unknown.
Detectives launched a widescale land and air search for the seven men who remain on the run.
Investigations are ongoing.
Police will address the media with more information later on Thursday.
