Disturbing reports have emerged about a terrifying incident involving two young schoolgirls and a suspected child predator in Melbourne’s east.

3AW Mornings understands a man entered the grounds of Laburnum Primary School, Blackburn, on Monday and exposed himself to two nine-year-old girls while they were on their way to the toilet during class.

He’s then alleged to have grabbed one of the girls and indecently assaulted her while the pair tried to run away after spotting him.

The incident happened around 11.30am.
