A man accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in a Melbourne cinema is being hunted by police.

The teenager was watching a movie in Glen Waverley on February 20, when the man sat down near her, put his coat between them, then reached under the coat and assaulted her.

He fled when the girl's mother confronted him.

Police have released an image in hopes of tracking the man down.
