Actor Craig McLachlan has been charged with assault and sex offences by Victoria Police.
Victoria Police confirmed to the ABC that sex crime detectives charged a 53-year-old NSW man with one count of common law assault, eight counts of indecent assault, and one count of attempted indecent assault.
Mr McLachlan was charged on summons to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on February 8.
The charges coincide with the actor’s time working on the Rocky Horror Show musical in Melbourne in 2014.
Mr McLachlan played the lead role of Dr Frank-N-Furter.
In a second statement, Victoria Police said: “We are receiving a large number of enquiries about a man who has been charged by Victoria Police with sexual assault offences.”
The actor has been a prominent face on stages and screens in Australia, and his career has spanned decades.
Mc McLachlan lives in NSW and will have to travel to Melbourne for the court appearance.
