A man has been charged after he allegedly touched a 14-year-old girl inappropriately at Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

Police allege the 26-year-old approached the teenager while she was looking at video games with her younger cousin in Big W on January 31.

The victim reported the incident to her father but a search of the shopping centre failed to locate the man.

Midland detectives launched an investigation and on Wednesday a man was charged with indecently dealing with a child over 13 and under 16 years.

He is due to appear in Midland Magistrates Court on April 22.
