Police are trying to find a white van driver, who offered a nine-year-old girl a lift in Workington.
It happened in the Firth View Walk area, in the morning.
The girl was approached by the white van with two people inside, and the driver asked if she would like a lift.
When she refused the van drove away.
The driver is described as having dark hair and he didn't have a local accent. He was driving a white Ford Transit van, and the other man was in the passenger seat.
Police are appealing for any witnesses with information to call Cumbria Police on 101.
