MANHUNT for intruder who broke into a Queensland home and tried to snatch a six-year-old girl from her bed.

Police said an “unknown man” forced his way into a home at Pinelands Drive, Loganlea, at around 5am this morning.

Once inside the man entered the upstairs bedroom of a six-year-old girl before removing her from the bed and carrying the child downstairs, a police statement said.

The child screamed and the man assaulted her by striking the girl in the face before fleeing the residence.

The girl’s parents were alerted by her screams and contacted police.

The incident is being investigated by detectives from the Logan Child Protection and Investigation Unit (CPIU)

The suspect is described as having a dark complexion, aged in his early 20s, wearing long pants, a charcoal hoodie and last seen riding a BMX bike.

“Due to the sensitive nature of the incident no further details will be released at this time,” a police spokesman said.

Anyone with information was urged to call CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.

  • Do hope the police catch this man so that no other family will have to face the same trauma.


  • Wow! Imagine waking up to that! That poor little girl won’t get over that quickly I’m glad she was able to scream and escape from him before any harm was done.


  • I wish we could rid the world of scum like that. That poor family, they will forever live in fear now. Hope they catch him soon.


  • What a traumatic incident for that little girl. So lucky she screamed and is safe and sound.


  • Poor family and poor child, hope this story has a happy ending…


  • I hope this person is found soon. What a horrible thing to do the child and her family.


  • Such a brazen act. Terrifying.


  • What a horrifying thing to happen to this girl and her parents. Hope the young girl is okay.


  • This is so scary, hope they get the monster asap!


  • How terrifying! Hope the suspect can be identified and charged!


  • Absolutely terrifying, every parents worst nightmare. So thankful the little girl screamed to put a stop to this. Imagine if the man had got away with her? Too horrible to contemplate


  • I just feel sick to the stomach when I hear these things. Thank goodness the girl wasn’t abducted. What a horrific experience for her and her family.


  • Thank God this girl wasn’t abducted, but how scary that you can’t even feel safe in your own home in your own bed ! This girl and her family will be effected for the rest of their lives.


  • Just when we think this can’t happen to us! Truth is, it can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime! I’m always vigilant of my children in public places, but at home? Really?!


  • Did he know the girl was upstairs? It seems a bit odd that he was able to get in and go straight to her without waking anybody. Pays to have a dog bark if your security fails. Poor little girl, so glad she did not get taken, but already damage is done, will make her very scared to sleep at night.
