A 24-YEAR-old Rockhampton man was recovering in hospital last night after being stabbed nine times.

It is believed the man was at his Kawana Close home when the attack occurred about 6.30am yesterday.

Despite receiving wounds to his upper chest and torso, the man escaped his attacker and sought help from neighbours.

Emergency services were called and the man was transported to Rockhampton Hospital.

A hospital spokesperson reported his condition as stable late yesterday.

A 19-year-old woman, was arrested and charged with attempted murder yesterday afternoon.

It is believed the accused was known to the victim, but police were unable to comment on what sparked the attack.
