An 11-year-old girl has been grabbed by the waist and pulled to the ground by a stranger who then fled in Lawnton, north of Brisbane.
Queensland Police have asked the public for help after receiving a report of the attack on the Francis Road overpass at 3.20pm on Saturday.
A man approached the girl and pulled her to the ground before running away toward a dark coloured SUV on Park Lane, police said.
The girl did not suffer any physical injuries.
The man is described as Caucasian in appearance with a shaved head, in his early 20s, wearing a light blue T-shirt, running shoes and black shorts.
