Melbourne, Feb 21: Sarah Hyland, who stars as Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom 'Modern Family', was recently groped by one of her fans gathered outside an event in Australia.
According to News.com.au, after an unidentified man indecently assaulted her, the visibly upset 23-year-old actress pointed at him and told him not to "touch her there".
The 29-year-old man was arrested at the scene by the security and was charged with assault with an act of indecency.
The brunette beauty later took to Twitter to apologise to her fans for leaving the bash, hosted by Qantas, early because of an inappropriate touch of a fan.
Meanwhile, a police rep refused to specify where Hyland was touched, but claimed that she had not been groped on the breast. (ANI)
