Craig McLachlan: actor charged with indecent assault by Victoria police

The 53-year-old Gold Logie-winner has been hit with one count of common law assault, eight counts of indecent assault, and one count of attempted indecent assault.

In breaking news, actor Craig McLachlan has been charged by Victoria Police with indecent assault offences.

McLachlan is due to face a magistrate in Melbourne on February 8.

A year ago Australian newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, in conjunction with Australia's ABC, revealed that several female co-stars from the 2014 production of the Rocky Horror show accused McLachlan of indecent and inappropriate behaviour.

He strongly denies the allegations and has launched defamation action in NSW.

The charges coincide with the actor's time working on the Rocky Horror Show musical - where he played the lead role of Dr Frank-N-Furter -in Melbourne in 2014.

Since the publications, McLachlan has become reclusive and his acting career has been effectively destroyed, his legal team said in May.

Actor Craig McLachlan has been charged with assault and sex offences.

Three months later, Seven dropped McLachlan from the Doctor Blake Mysteries series.
