Investigators believe the man, wearing a black cap and black sunglasses, got on the tram at the same time as the child, at the Swanston Street stop.

The girl told her family member who then confronted the man.

He fled from the tram as it stopped on Collins Street (between Williams and Market streets), running towards Market St to Flinders St.
