Sarah Hyland was sexually assaulted by a fan after a “Modern Family” party in Australia on Wednesday night.

The actress was posing for photos with fans outside the Sydney bash when a man allegedly groped her breast.

Hyland reportedly yelled, “Don’t touch me there!” before security stepped in and questioned the 29-year-old man, who was later arrested and charged with indecent assault.

The star vented about the incident on Twitter, writing, “Sorry to all the fans outside the event that I didn’t get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan.”

Hyland’s boyfriend Matt Prokop tweeted, “To the a**hole who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don’t see next week.”

He added, “All Sarah wanted to do tonight was say hi to the girls who were waiting outside. One douche can ruin it for everyone.”

Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for Hyland for more details.

The cast of “Modern Family” is in Australia to film a special vacation episode of the show.
