Unfortunately, Sarah Hyland of Modern Family fame had a highly unpleasant experience during a recent fan event in Australia. The 23-year-old star was at a meet-and-great hosted by Aussie airline Qantas Airways last week when one man in the group allegedly groped her breast as she passed by.

Photos saw Sarah leave the event in tears — we know we'd be rattled, too! She played it cool online later, apologizing to fans for having to leave the event earlier than expected "due to an inappropriate touch of a fan." 

Her boyfriend, Matt Prokop, meanwhile didn't mince words when discussing what happened to his lady at the event. "To the a—hole who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don't see next week," he tweeted.

That message has since been deleted with Matt tweeting on February 20, "A comment I made was taken out of context if you had people going after your girl you would get defensive as well. #sorrynotsorry."

As for the 29-year-old man allegedly involved in the incident in Sydney, he was arrested shortly after the incident with Sarah's bodyguards quickly rushing her away from the situation. Check back with Wetpaint Entertainment for the latest updates as we get them.
