It happened on Tuesday 5th July on the footpath which runs along the beck at Stumps Cross.
The incident happened between 3:30pm and 3:45pm when the girl was approached by four male teenagers, aged between 13 and 14-years-old.

Cleveland Police say, once again, they have received reports of people throwing stones at cars from the footbridge over the A19 between the Mandale interchange and the Tees flyover.
The incidents happened on Monday (19th June) between 8:20pm and 9:20pm.
A black Vauxhall Vectra, a green Fiat 500, a white Vauxhall Corsa, and a HGV truck were all damaged as a result of the incidents.
No one was injured.
One of the objects - thought to be a stone - thrown at cars had flipped up and smashed into the window of a box van causing significant damage to the windscreen.
The driver was uninjured.
It is believed a group of youths are responsible for the incidents and officers have visited a nearby estate to speak with residents for them to advise youths on the dangers of stone throwing.
“It is clear that these youths do not understand the extremely dangerous consequences of their actions by throwing objects at moving vehicles and I am concerned to hear that these incidents are still happening.
“Thankfully so far, no one has been severely injured or killed but eventually this could happen if these incidents do not stop.
“Do these youths want death on their conscience as a result of their irresponsible behaviours? How would they feel if one of their friends or family members was injured or killed as a result of someone throwing a stones at their vehicles.
“I am certain they would be absolutely devastated and this shocking behaviour should not be encouraged.
“I would like the parents of these children involved to step up and play their part in educating their children on the serious dangers of throwing objects at vehicles before someone dies.
“Anyone found to be carrying out such acts will face the full force of the law.”
