A man has been stabbed by a gang of four people during a home invasion in Melbourne.
The group broke into his unit in Dandenong North about 3.30am on Saturday.
Police say the man, aged 41, was assaulted while the gang ransacked the house before fleeing.
He suffered stab wounds to his face and upper body and was treated at The Alfred hospital.
The offenders are believed to be Pacific Islander in appearance, police say.
It remained unclear if anything was stolen from the property.
The man remains in a serious but stable condition.
