Lost star Henry Ian Cusick is being sued by a former ABC employee who alleges sexual battery and harassment against the actor, Entertainment Weekly reported.

According to the suit, filed last week in Los Angeles court, Cusick allegedly squeezed and placed his face on the plaintiff's breasts, kissed her on the mouth and caressed the back of her body while making moaning sounds.

The plaintiff claims the incident occurred on the set of the hit series on or about Oct. 16, 2007, and that she was fired 12 days later, in retaliation for reporting Cusick's behavior.

ABC spokespersons, the plaintiff's attorney, and employees of Grass Skirt Productions didn't comment on the suit to EW.com.
