AAP logoAAP 23/09/2016

A man has been charged with indecently assaulting a young girl who was wearing a fairytale costume when he picked her up on a street in NSW's Hunter Region.

The 36-year-old man offered the 11-year-old girl a lift on a Monday afternoon last month on a Stockington street.

A short time later he stopped the car and indecently assaulted her before she broke free and ran away, police allege.

A passing motorist stopped to help the girl and contacted police and emergency services.

The man was charged on Thursday with aggravated indecent assault and refused bail to appear at Belmont Local Court on Friday.
