  • McLachlan faced allegations of misconduct by fellow cast members while starring in the Rocky Horror Show in 2014

Actor and singer Craig McLachlan has been changed with assault and sex offenses by Victoria Police.

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.

McLachlan - known for roles in Neighbours and Home & Away - will appear at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on February 8.

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.

However, it has not been confirmed whether the charges relate to the Rocky Horror Shows accusations.
