Modern Family star assaulted in Sydney

  • Authorities have charged a 29-year-old man of assaulting Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, who plays the role of teenager Haley Dunphy in the show. 

    Reports suggest that the cast of the series arrived in Australia this week and Hyland was attending a social function at a hotel when she was groped on the chest by the man who wanted to take a photograph with her. 

    The actress alerted the guards and was shaken by the incident. 

    "Sorry to all the fans outside the #qantas event that I didn't get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan," she tweeted.
