A 29-year-old pregnant woman who is believed to be the victim’s partner was also home at the time and witnessed the incident.

Police said she was found to have minor non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Blacktown Hospital as a precaution.

Acting on information from the public, a 25-year-old man believed to be the victim’s attacker was arrested this morning and taken to hospital for a mental health assessment.

The man, who police say is known to the couple, is expected to be interviewed by detectives once he is released from hospital.
