A man is on the run after storming a house and stabbing two people in a frenzied attack while teenagers were at home.
A man has been killed and a woman critically injured after an invader stormed into their home and launched a frenzied stabbing attack.
Two teenagers were home at the time.
Tasmania Police are searching for the suspect that attacked the pair at their Launceston property.
Officers were first called to the Ravenswood address just after 3:30am on Thursday morning after receiving reports that a man entered the house and stabbed the two people.
At the time of the incident, police said there were two teenagers that were home but were spared from being physically harmed.
The woman was taken to the Launceston General Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.
Police do not believe there is a threat to the wider community but have asked members of the public to avoid the area while investigations are underway.
