A 68-year-old man has been arrested after a Nelson school girl was grabbed while walking to class.

Police say a man grabbed the teen's shoulder and started to speak to her on Norwich Street at about 8.20am on Monday.

She was uncomfortable about the incident and reported it to her school.

Police on Tuesday said a man had been arrested and would appear in Nelson District Court charged with assaulting a child next week.
