A man has been arrested for an alleged assault on a 14-year-old girl outside a McDonald's in Melbourne.

In a statement on Wednesday, police said a 47-year-old man was "assisting police with enquiries", 7 News reports.

The victim of the attack, Aimee Carpinteri-Jobe, has spoken of how scared she was.

"He could have killed me," she told 7 News. "If I fell back and hit my head on the concrete, I could have died."

The stepdad of one of the victim's friends was the attacker, it has been alleged.
