A man has been accused of exposing himself and sexually touching a four-year-old girl while she was shopping with her family on the NSW mid-north coast.

The 52-year-old was arrested on Thursday afternoon following reports a young girl had been abused by an unknown man in Wauchope, west of Port Macquarie, that morning.

Police will allege the man exposed himself to the girl before touching her and then leaving the area.

The man was charged with intentionally sexually touching a child under the age of 10.

He was refused bail and is due to appear at Port Macquarie Local Court on Friday.
