Sarah Hyland of “Modern Family” fame was assaulted by a male fan who groped her breast at a “Modern Family” promotional party in Australia hosted by Qantas. Hyland became visibly emotional after the inappropriate behavior of this fan, according to MSN News on Feb. 20.

She screamed and said “Don’t touch me there,” and security came over and took the man into custody. The 29-year-old man was arrested for groping Hyland, but the exact charges are not known.

Hyland left the party immediately following that inappropriate grope of her breast. She later tweeted her fans to apologize for not being there to meet them but said he had to leave the party abruptly after “an inappropriate touch of a fan.”

Hyland quietly left upset, but she still maintained her composure. Her long-time boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop, didn’t take kindly to some man taking this liberty with the love of his life. Prokop took to Twitter to share his rage:

"To the [expletive] who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don't see next week," he tweeted. "All Sarah wanted to do tonight was say hi to the girls who were waiting outside one douche can ruin it for everyone. Goodnight."
