Lake Macquarie Police have released CCTV images of a man they'd like to speak to, after a teenage girl was approached in Charlestown Square.
The 13-year-old was shopping with friends on Sunday 10 June, when she was allegedly grabbed on the arm by a man who seemed agitated and aggressive.
The man continued to follow the young girl and her friends until they ran into a store and alerted security.
He then quickly left the shops.
The man in the image is described as Caucasian in appearance with a solid build, graying dark hair and aged in his mid-40s.
He's shown wearing a green checkered flannelette long sleeve shirt with long shorts and boots.
