Police described the suspect as being white and in his forties. At the time he was wearing a black hooded jumper, a black face mask and grey jogging bottoms.
When he left the scene in the direction of Minster Road a second person was seen walking in the alleyway and Detective Sergeant Brian Crane from Kent Police believes this person could help with enquiries.
He said: "It’s quite likely that the witness would have been unaware that an offence had taken place, but they may recall seeing a man talking with a schoolgirl as they walked in the alley.
“Any information they have, no matter how small it may seem, could greatly assist us with our enquiries and we would encourage them to contact us at their earliest convenience.”
“Likewise, we would be very keen to hear from anyone with privately held CCTV, or dash cam footage, that captures a man in the vicinity at the time of this incident.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01795 419119 quoting 46/53036/21.
