The condition of a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed in a Carey Park home last week was expected to have improved enough for him to be interviewed by police yesterday.

The boy was flown to Fiona Stanley Hospital in a critical condition on Wednesday night following a confrontation where he was left with a stab wound.

Police were called to the Eedle Street house about 9pm after reports of a disturbance.

The teenager was found with life-threatening injuries and taken to Bunbury Hospital before being flown to Perth.
