A man was seen acting suspiciously near a girl as she walked home from school.
The man, described as in his 50s or 60s, drove away when challenged by a dog walker in Longdown Road, Little Sandhurst, at around 5pm on Tuesday.
Police are appealing for information and asking people to be vigilant after a school boy reported the 'worrying' incident.
Det Sgt John Slater, investigating officer, said: “A report of this nature is naturally worrying and we are doing all that we can to establish the full facts of what happened on Tuesday."
Police have been unable to identify the school girl or trace the dog walker, who is described as a white woman in her thirties wearing a pink jumper and walking a small white dog with brown patches.
Det Sgt Slater added: “It is crucial that we identify both these people to assist with our ongoing enquiries, as well as any other independent witnesses who may have been in the area at the time."
The man was driving a Land Rover Discovery and is described as white, with white hair and wearing a jacket.
Inspector Jon Goosey, deputy police commander at Bracknell Forest, said: “Until the full facts of Tuesday’s incident are established and we have been able to trace both the girl and woman, as well as being able to speak to the man in question, I would ask that people remain vigilant and report anything suspicious.
“This is very much an isolated report and we will continue to provide updates to the public as we understand the concern and worry an incident of this nature can cause.”
