A young girl was grabbed by a man while playing at a rock pool on the Central Coast yesterday.
The seven-year-old girl was playing with her siblings at Norah Head when a man grabbed her hand and tried to lead her away.
She was able to break free and alerted her grandmother.
The man ran towards the public toilets, but police were later unable to locate him.
He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, around 40 years old, with a chubby build. He is approximately 165-170cm tall with receding dark hair.
