The cast of the ABC series arrived in the city this week to shoot an Australian episode.

The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper reported that the 23-year-old was attending a social function for cast members at a Sydney hotel when she was allegedly groped on the chest by a man who had asked her to pose for a photograph.

Sarah, who plays big-eyed teenager Haley Dunphy, immediately alerted private security guards, who called police to the scene.

Police said in a statement that a 29-year-old man had been charged following the alleged indecent assault.

The actress later apologised on Twitter for leaving early, tweeting: "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."
