The man allegedly assaulted the girls, before fleeing the scene.

“The little girls are pretty traumatised but they have been really brave by coming forward and speaking to us,” Detective Senior Constable Kellie Berry said.

Police have canvassed the area and found CCTV footage of a man they wish to speak to in relation to the incident.

Detectives from the Ballarat Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team have appealed for public assistance to track down the man as despite numerous enquiries, police have been unable to identify him.
