Police are today hunting two men seen approaching children at a Herne Bay primary school.
Suspicions were raised after a woman saw the pair on the pavement outside Hampton Primary School at 10.20am on Friday.
She saw them walk up to a 10-year-old boy to ask him his age.
At 2.30pm, the pair emerged from an alley in Beaumont Street. As a 10-year-old girl walked past, one of the men stroked her arm.
The men are described as "disheveled" and between 27 and 30.
One had a shaved head and was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms with purple backless slippers.
Police said the other man had dark hair, was wearing a dirty blue tracksuit top and was carrying a child's rucksack.
Police spokesman Lisa Humphrys said an investigation is now under way.
She added: "Police have visited the parents of both children and the local police community support officer is conducting extra patrols in the area."
