findObjectUnderMouse eventArg is null

I am experiencing this error when connecting two ports. I have looked into source code and it would be great if ejs library would null check eventArg value

ERROR TypeError: Cannot set property 'actualObject' of null
    at ObjectFinder.findObjectUnderMouse (ej2-diagrams.es2015.js:24520)

Problematic source code

  if ((action === 'ConnectorSourceEnd' && source || action === 'PortDraw') ||
                ((canDrawOnce(diagram) || canContinuousDraw(diagram)) && getObjectType(diagram.drawingObject) === Connector)) {
                let connector = diagram.selectedItems.connectors[0];
                for (let i = objects.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
                    outPort = getInOutConnectPorts(objects[i], false);
                    if (objects[i] instanceof Node && (canOutConnect(objects[i]) || (canPortOutConnect(outPort)))) {
                        actualTarget = objects[i];
                        if (connector) {
                            actualTarget = this.isTarget(actualTarget, diagram, action);
                        eventArg.actualObject = actualTarget;
                        return actualTarget;
