Police say the Mary Street resident disturbed a man breaking into his unit just after 7pm.

A scuffle ensued which resulted in the 53-year-old man sustaining a stab wound to his head and upper arm.

Paramedics, including critical care, treated the man for his non-life-threatening injuries.

He was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a serious condition.

Anyone who may have witnessed or heard any suspicious behaviour in the area about 7pm is asked to contact police.
