A stranger kissed a young girl on the cheek moments before he tried to abduct her near Geelong.

The 12-year-old girl was walking her dog in Corio on Monday afternoon when the man stopped next to her and patted her dog before placing his hand on her shoulder and kissing her cheek.

While still holding onto her, he told the girl to "come with me" but she was able to struggle free and raised alarm at a nearby school.

Police on Tuesday released a computer generated image of the man, believed to be aged between 50 and 70 with tanned skin, short white hair and a heavy European accent.
