Actress Sarah Hyland groped by fan

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 21, 2014

Actress Sarah Hyland, 23, was indecently assaulted by a fan while attending an event hosted by Quantas Airlines with fellow "Modern Family" cast-mates in Sydney. "Modern Family" is currently filming an Australian episode.

Hyland was asked to pose for a picture with a male guest who then proceeded to grope her chest. After reporting the incident to security, she allegedly left the party early.

"New South Wales state police said in a statement on Friday that a 29-year-old man had been charged following the alleged indecent assault. He was charged with assault with an act of indecency, a crime that carries a potential maximum of five years in prison," reports Access Hollywood. "He was freed on bail to appear in a Sydney court on March 14. Police have not revealed his name."

Hyland plays the role of "Haley Dunphy" the eldest child of the Dunphy family.
