A father has furiously confronted a man accused of grooming and raping his 14-year-old daughter when he tried to come back for more abuse.
Jamil Chowdhury, 22, allegedly exchanged an ‘extraordinarily high’ number of messages with the girl on Instagram after meeting her online last year.
He is accused of performing oral sex on the girl and digitally penetrating her during a January 2 attack at her home in Villawood in Sydney’s west.
When he allegedly tried to see the teenager again at her home on Monday night her family were waiting for him and restrained him until police arrived, Fairfield Court heard.

The girl’s mother (pictured) had told Chowdhury to stop contacting her daughter after allegedly seeing messages between them
Chowdhury denied messaging the girl in a police interview – instead claiming the girl signed into his account and then logged out to respond as herself.
Footage shows the father holding Chowdhury down as he cowered on a sofa holding his hands over his head.
‘When he came in I got behind my daughter, closed the door and grabbed him on the neck,’ the father told 7News.
The girl’s mother became aware of the messages between the pair after the first sexual encounter, police alleged.
She then told Chowdhury her daughter was underage and to stop contacting her, the court heard.
But they allegedly continued to exchange messages and the court heard at one point they ‘professed their love for each other’.
Chowdhury faced Fairfield Local Court on Tuesday afternoon where he was refused bail over the alleged sexual assault and grooming of the 14-year-old girl
A magistrate on Tuesday said it was highly unlikely the accused’s version of events was true, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Court documents alleged Chowdhury met the teenage girl on December 1 last year and continued their ‘indecent’ chats on Instagram until Monday night.
Police alleged Chowdhury hoped this would make it easier to convince the girl the have sex with him.
He was charged with one count of having sexual intercourse with a child and one count of grooming a child over the age of 14 and under 16.
Chowdhury applied for bail on Tuesday afternoon but that application was refused by Magistrate Theo Tsavdaridis.
He was ordered to reappear in court on February 9, 2021.
