A man has been charged with kidnapping a seven-year-old girl from a Kmart store before sexually assaulting her in bushes nearby.

The father of two young twins will face court again on Wednesday charged with taking the girl from a Westfield shopping centre in North Lakes, north of Brisbane, shares Daily Mail.

The alleged abduction was mentioned in a Facebook post which warned parents to keep a close eye on their children during the frantic Christmas shopping season.

The 26-year-old man allegedly lured the girl from her mother when she was out of sight at a Kmart store.

He then allegedly drove her to bushland in Pumicestone Passage before sexually assaulting her.

After the assault, the girl was driven back to the shopping centre and left there.

The man has been charged with taking a child for immoral purposes, deprivation of liberty and indecent treatment of a child under 12.

A Brisbane mother claims she was also at Kmart on Saturday and saw the man lurking around and staring at her 8 year old daughter.

“I had a terrible gut feeling about him!”

She told Daily Mail that she never normally leaves her daughter, so has been left feeling sick thinking about it now.

‘There was a guy standing there leaning on the shelf… his eyes were just fixed on my daughter and he was only an arm’s length away from her.

‘I called for her and then he was startled, he looked at me and walked away. Straight away, I 100 per cent had a gut feeling that something wasn’t right… now that I know what happened I just feel sick.’

  • Sometimes I think they should reintroduce castration !

  • Sadly we do live in a world that has pedophiles and you need to be vigilant at all times, do not let your kids out of your sight. I see it too often, parents looking at their phones, and getting distracted by other things, never, ever, not know where your child is at all times.

  • Just don’t understand how any father can do something like this to an innocent 7 year old. The penalty will never be enough

  • This is so sickening ! This 7yr old girl is probably scarred for life. And he’s a father, what is he planning to do with his own kids when they’re a little older ?

  • He is a father. How could he do that to another Dad’s child? I hope he gets life in jail so he can never do it again. At least in this case he was arrested quickly before he ruined another girl’s life.

  • This makes me sick. That poor little girl, her life has been forever changed for the worse by this pathetic man. All I can say Is I hope that he was caught before he managed to hurt his own little girls too. I dont think they should call him a father either – a father doesn’t do things like this to kids. Hope he gets sent to jail for a long time


    • I hate to think of his own family set up – very worrying!



      • Very worrying indeed as he’s the father of two young twins !!

  • I heard about this – horrible! People like this shouldn’t be allowed on our streets. I have no words for the vulgar animals that they are.

  • I hope his partner has the sense to throw him and and not let him near their children! I feel for the woman who didn’t say anything as she’s now carrying guilt for this mans actions!

  • What a terrifying thing to happen to this poor girl and the guilt that poor Mother must be feeling. Just remember all the blame goes to this disgusting excuse of a man. I hope he gets jailed and the same is done to him. I have no remorse saying this either.

  • That is so terrifying. He was obviously set on taking someone. Have to wonder if he hasn’t done this before.

  • What a disgusting human being. That poor girl and her family. The trauma she will have suffered is just inconceivable. This man must be punished to the full extent of the law. When shopping at KMart is no longer safe, there is a real problem.

  • All children should have a secret password with their parents so if anyone tries to lure them away the perpetrator must tell the child the password. I had a password for my children from the age of 4 and they were taught about strangers all the time.
    I believe this man has young baby twin girls too. I think the authorities should have these children taken away so they dont experience the same vile act that he did to the young girl. I would be surprise if he hasn’t already done so.
    This man and anyone convicted of these offences should be castrated. Im sorry if this offends anyone but it is how I feel.
