SYDNEY, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A man who groped Sarah Hyland's chest at a Modern Family after-party in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday has been charged with assault with an act of indecency.

The 23-year-old star reportedly left the party in tears after the incident. She apologized to her fans for leaving early on Wednesday via Twitter.
