Mom-to-be stabbed in Sunbury

Police capture two suspects

SUNBURY -- Two men allegedly broke into a house at 544 Susquehanna Ave. about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, where they apparently confronted two people inside. Shortly thereafter, one of the occupants, a nine-month pregnant woman, was stabbed just above the hip and another occupant was injured in a scuffle.

Police were not saying if the two home invaders knew the people inside.

According to a man who lived across the street, but who asked not to be identified, the woman who was stabbed ran out of the house to the nearby Turkey Hill convenience store.

The Turkey Hill employees working at the time said they could not talk to the media as a matter of company policy.

The woman who was stabbed was taken to a hospital. Her condition is unknown, and police did not disclose her identity.

The man who was living in the house was also taken to a hospital. The extent of his injuries is unknown.

Police from Sunbury and neighboring jurisdictions rushed to scene, surrounded the house and closed off the block to traffic.

Shortly after police arrived at the house, two men were apprehended by police. It is not known where they were taken. Police declined to give any names or details about the home invasion.

By 10:30 p.m., the streets had cleared and several police vehicles left the scene, but Sunbury police, assisted by state police officers, were combing the house for evidence.

Assisting Sunbury police were officers from Milton borough, Point Township, Northumberland borough and state police.
