Investigators are also looking into a possible link between the home invasion and a number of stabbings in Fortitude Valley on Saturday night. 

According to police, the victims were believed to have been targeted for their belongings in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The man made it to a nearby police station before being transported to hospital to be treated for a stab wound to the back and a collapsed lung. 

Two other people were also stabbed in separate instances around the same area.

Police arrested a 17-year-old boy a short time later.
