A terrifying encounter for a young schoolgirl at Tweed Heads yesterday, after she was approached by two men.
The nine-year-old told police she first saw the men out the front of a house on Heffron St around 8:30 in the morning, before they started following her.
One apparently grabbed her around the waist, but she managed to struggle free and run off.
The girl alerted a teacher who immediately called police.
Investigations continue, with the men involved being urged to come forward.
They are described as being aged between 20 and 30, both with nose piercings.
