Sarah Hyland has accused a male fan of indecently assaulting her by touching her breast at a party in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday (18.02.14).

Sarah Hyland fled a party in Australia because a fan allegedly groped her.

The 'Modern Family' star, who is currently shooting a special holiday episode of the show in the city, left a bash, hosted by Qantas at The Sebel Pier One in Sydney, in floods of tears on Tuesday night (18.02.14), after accusing the fan of grabbing her breast while asking for a photograph with her.

The brunette beauty, who plays Haley Dunphy in the comedy series, pushed the man way and screamed, 'Don't touch me there,' before security intervened and police were called to the scene.

A spokesperson for the New South Wales Police Department told the MailOnline website: ''A man is assisting police with investigations following an alleged indecent assault of a woman yesterday. It is alleged the man indecently assaulted the 23-year-old woman near Hickson Road, The Rocks, at about 7.50pm.

''A 29-year-old man was arrested. Police are continuing their investigations.''

Shortly after the incident, the 23-year-old actress wrote on Twitter: ''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.''

Her boyfriend Matt Prokop, who attended the party with her, also tweeted: ''To the a**hole who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don't see next week.

''All Sarah wanted to do tonight was say hi to the girls who were waiting outside one douche can ruin it for everyone. Goodnight.'' it for everyone. Goodnight.''
