Craig McLachlan charged with indecent assault

Craig McLachlan: actor charged with indecent assault by Victoria police

McLachlan is due to appear at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on 8 February.

On that occasion Scundi said: "He pushed his pelvis into me and moved around so I could feel his penis against my body", It is understood that another actress on the same production has also complained to police about McLachlan indecently assaulting her during the 2014 Rocky Horror season.

That same month, McLachlan was ousted from The Rocky Horrow Show with producers The Gordon Frost Organisation announcing it is "not appropriate" for him to continue in light of the sexual assault and harassment allegations against him. McLachlan was sacked from the upcoming Rocky Horror Show production and also from the ABC's The Doctor Blake Mysteries.

Police said Melbourne Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team have charged a 53-year-old NSW man on Friday.

McLachlan is well known for his time on the Australian soap opera Neighbours, where he played Henry Ramsay - the brother of Kylie Minogue's character Charlene.

The song rose to number three on the Australian charts and McLachlan got an ARIA award for the biggest selling song of the year in 1990.

More recently he has appeared on the ABC TV show The Doctor Blake Mysteries in the lead role of Dr Lucien Blake, who returns home to Ballarat in the 1950s to take over his father's GP practice.

Craig's current partner is conductor Vanessa Scammell.
