A man in his 50s is recovering in hospital after he was attacked by intruders during a violent home invasion in North York on Saturday morning.

The man was stabbed twice and sprayed with a substance, possibly pepper spray, when a group of suspects broke into a home on McKee Avenue near Willowdale Avenue about 7:15 a.m., police said.

The victim's injuries are described as non-life threatening.

A woman and a child were home at the time of the incident, but they weren't injured.
