A man tried to grab the hand of a six-year-old girl while she was out playing with a friend in a Berkshire town.
The girls were approached by the man, who was with a small child, near the Ringwood Road and Romsey Road junction in Tilehurst.
They fled to the home of the six-year-old girl and alerted her parents at about 19:00 BST on Saturday.
There is no suggestion that the man tried to take the girls from the area, said police.
Officers searched the area and conducted house-to-house inquiries.
Det Insp Liz Kirk is appealing for witnesses and said the girls would be interviewed by specially-trained officers.
