A Hutt Valley man accused of trying to snatch a school girl off the street last week has appeared in court.

The 52-year-old allegedly tried to grab an 11-year-old girl on her way to school last Monday.

He's been granted name suppression and has been remanded on strict bail conditions, including not to be in public without another adult.

The man will reappear in the Hutt Valley District Court court next month.
