34 Year Australian Man Has Been Charged For Dragging A 7-Year-Old Girl Into An Abandoned Home.


Christopher Irwin is behind bars accused of luring a 7-year-old girl into an abandoned home in Macquarie Fields, New South Wales, Australia

The young girl was skating across a driveway when she was allegedly grabbed.

The grandmother of a seven-year-old girl allegedly taken to an abandoned house by a 34-year-old man has revealed a series of chilling details about the ordeal.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sitting in her front yard of a Macquarie Fields home on Friday afternoon when she was alerted by neighbours that her granddaughter had been taken inside an abandoned property.

The young girl was skating across a driveway when she was allegedly grabbed.

“She was literally in my driveway, skated in the gutter one driveway away then the man walked up and asked her, 'do you want to see something cool?',” the grandmother told 7NEWS.

'Do you want to see something cool?

“She walked that little bit then he grabbed her by the hand and dragged her inside his house and slammed the door.”

The woman, along with two neighbours – one who’d witnessed the incident – frantically ran to the property.


“We all went running down because they told me he took her into there," she added.

“We were banging. The boys were kicking the door in. We were smashing the windows.

“One went out the back, tried to get in through the back way.

“It was quiet for what seemed like an eternity then I heard her muffled sound.

“I heard her yell out nanny. I had the police on the phone at that stage.”

'I owe them her life.'

The woman, who said the whole event was over within about 10 minutes, said her granddaughter managed to get out of the man’s grip and escape through the front door. Her jacket had come off while she was inside.

“The boys grabbed him and we had him barricaded on the veranda. The whole time I was talking to the police to make sure that he didn’t escape until the police came," the grandmother recalled.

‘Right under our noses’
The girl’s grandmother has praised the neighbours, who she hadn’t spoken to much before, for coming to her aid.

“They’re my heroes,” she said.

“It was them helping me boot the door in and everything to help me get her out.


'Who knows what would’ve happened.'
“If no one’s seen that bit, who knows what would’ve happened.

“I owe them her life.”

The grandmother, who said the children usually played in her backyard but were unable to because of a snake sighting, says the neighbourhood always keeps an eye out for each others’ children.

“All it takes is that one split second. It’s all about neighbourhood watch," she added.

“Me and my mother were in my front yard watching. It was just that split second that she was in the driveway, he’s taken that opportunity and grabbed her.

All it takes is that one split second.
“For all those people that say, ‘where’s the supervision’, all the people in the street can verify I sit in my yard when my kids ride the bikes.

And while her granddaughter has been extensively taught about stranger danger, her grandmother says she let her guard down after the one question.

“You think that your kid understands stranger danger. They don’t," she added.


The man, who was charged with taking a child with intent to remove parental control and remain in building with intent to commit indictable offence, did not live at the property he allegedly took the girl to, according to her grandmother.

“He’s not like a known neighbour. He’s just been staying in the house," she explained.

The 34-year-old was refused bail and will face court on Saturday.
