The man arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting Modern Family star Sarah Hyland was filmed inappropriately touching Sandra Bullock when she was in Australia for the premiere of her film The Heat last year.

In footage captured by the Daily Telegraph, Nedal Lakmas, is shown grazing Bullock's breast when asking for an autograph. Bullock flinches and snaps "don't touch my breast" before laughing off the incident. 

The Telegraph noted that Bullock did not take action against the serial autograph hunter.

However Nedal Lakmas was arrested and charged with one count of indecency at the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney after allegedly groping the breast of Sarah Hyland, who plays eldest sibling Haley Dunphy in the hit comedy, at a Qantas fan event in the Rocks last week.

Photographs from the event show Hyland appearing distressed and angrily pointing at a man, who was later taken away in a paddy wagon.

Hyland left the event in tears, later tweeting an apology to her fans for leaving the event without getting to say hi to them all.
