The moment a man attempted to abduct an eight-year-old girl has been caught on camera.
The incident occurred in Emerald, Queensland, on Thursday.
In the chilling CCTV footage, the man pulls into the rear of the Emerald Hotel on Clermont St at around 4.50pm.
He is driving a white Toyota Hilax with a tray back. He pulls up next to a Holden Sedan.
Just as he parks, a woman and a child are seen exiting the Sedan and walking into the back of the hotel.
