Police are investigating a child approach at Muswellbrook yesterday.
Three children, aged 11, eight and four were playing at the northern end of a reserve near Hunt Place at about 12:30pm when a man called out to them.
He then approached and allegedly pushed all three of them to the ground, before he tried to touch the 8-year-old on the face.
The children ran off and called police who took the kids home.
They’ve now commenced an investigation.
The man is described as being between 155-165cm tall, in his early to mid-20s, with a dark complexion, medium build, black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers.
