PSNI detectives have launched an attempted murder investigation after a group of men entered a house in Co Fermanagh armed with machetes.
Police were alerted at around 9.15pm last night that a number of men had entered the home at Trasna Way in Lisnaskea.
They forced their way in and attacked two of the occupants, a 41-year-old woman and a 13-year-old girl.
The young girl sustained serious stab wounds and is in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
The older woman was stabbed in the leg but has since been released from hospital.
A baby who was also in the house was not harmed in the incident.
Detective Sergeant Keith Monaghan said: "This must have been a terrifying ordeal for those involved and we are determined to find the men responsible.
"We have several lines of enquiry which we are progressing at this time but I would ask anyone with information or who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact detectives in Enniskillen and pass that information on.”
