Police have set up a strike force team to investigate allegations of indecent assault made against Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes.
Sarah Monahan, who played Hughes’s on-screen daughter on the Channel Seven show from 1987 to 1994, has told media outlets that he touched her inappropriately.
Hughes, who now lives in Singapore, has strenuously denied the allegations.
Today it was announced that detectives have formed Strike Force Ruskin to examine the claims.
They say they will interview alleged victims and witnesses but warn that it will be a protracted investigation.
Earlier, police said they were likely to take a statement on the allegations later today.
A police spokesman said a statement was most likely to be taken from Monahan at an undisclosed location.
Last week, police said they had begun to collate material relating to the matter but an official complaint had yet to be made.
