The parents of a six-year-old girl have told a court of the horrifying moment she woke them up to say she had been molested by a stranger in her bed.
The girl's mum and stepfather at first thought she had a nightmare but noticed she was no longer wearing her onesie.
Her stepdad went to check her room and found intruder Jervaise Jones asleep in her bed.
The 25-year-old is alleged to have sexually assaulted the girl after breaking in to her home through a kitchen window and creeping into her room while the family slept.
The court heard he had removed the youngster's onesie and taken off his trousers.
The police were called and officers arrived at the property in Weymouth, Dorset, to arrest Jones at about 6.45am in October last year.
It is not known when Jones broke into the house or when he is alleged to have assaulted the girl.
The case continues at Bournemouth Crown Court
Bournemouth Crown Court heard the girl shook her stepdad awake at 6.30am to ask: "Why is there a man in my bed?"
Her mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told a jury: "I woke up to the sound of my daughter talking to my partner.
"She told him there was a man in her bedroom. He got out of bed to investigate.
"As soon as I turned over and saw her I saw she had no pyjamas on.
"She had gone to bed in a Minnie Mouse red onesie. I asked her where her pyjamas were and she told me he had taken them off.
"She had a red tummy, it looked like a rash.
"My partner shouted that there was a grown man in her bed and told me to ring the police.
"I called them from my mobile and I waited in our bedroom with my daughter until the police arrived."
The court heard the girl woke her stepfather first because his side of the bed was closer to the door.
He said: "She had been ill the last week and waking up due to nightmares.
"I was still a bit dazed, I told her to get in bed with her mum and I put my tracksuit bottoms on and went (to her room).
"I flicked her light switch on and saw legs and feet hanging across the end of the top bunk.
"I took a step further inside and saw it was a man, laying semi-naked on the top bunk. He had a t-shirt on but nothing below that.
Police arrested Jones at 6.45am
"His head was on her pillow, he was lying exactly where she would be.
"I couldn't make out whether he was asleep or passed out, but there was no movement.
"I called up to make sure neither of them came down and then shot downstairs to see if there was anybody else there.
"The kitchen window blind was crumpled in the middle and I could see the window was clearly open.
"We had locked everything up as we went to bed.
"I went back upstairs and waited by the bedroom door until the police asked me to move out the way.
"The only reason I didn't go at the gentleman is because I wouldn't have stopped. Your first option is to defend your loved ones.
"Once the police ushered me out of the way I couldn't see I could only hear the conversation.
"I heard him say to the police 'who have I burgled? who have I assaulted?'"
The jury was shown a recording of the girl being interviewed by police.
She was also asked questions by the prosecutor and defence barristers in court via video link in a 'child-friendly' room with an intermediary present.
She told Nick Robinson, defending, 'the man' undid her zip and took off her pyjamas and assaulted her.
The mother told the court of the impact the incident has had on her daughter.
She said: "She's one of the bubbliest children, her character is amazing. That morning she was confused and embarrassed to talk to me.
"I don't think she really understands how much of a severe thing it is that happened.
"I felt like the worst person, that I let my daughter down completely. I thought I should have heard something or woken up."
Jones, of no fixed address, has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault of a girl aged under 13 and trespass with intent to commit a sexual act.
The trial continues.
