While not injured, the trio, aged between 12 and 13, were left extremely shaken as a result of their ordeal at 2.20pm on Sunday afternoon.
Investigating officer, PC Dan Lydster of Warwickshire Police, said: "This was a very frightening incident for the girls and they have been left understandably shaken.
"Additional patrols will be in the area whilst enquiries are ongoing, and we are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or who may recognise the description of the offender to please come forward."
The suspect has been described as being of mixed race male, around 16 years old, 6ft in height and slim.
