A Queensland man accused of attempting to abduct a girl after breaking into a home has been remanded in custody.

In what police have described as a random attack, it's alleged Cory Dean Caulton broke into the Gladstone house where three girls, all aged 12, were sleeping early Sunday morning.

Police allege the 24-year-old lay down on the mattress and touched one girl before trying to drag her outside but her screams woke her grandfather who came to her aid.

Caulton is facing a number of charges including child abduction, assault and indecent treatment of a child.

He was remanded in custody when his matter was heard in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The case is due to return to court on November 22.
