You come at the king, you best not miss.

Police are currently on the hunt for a pair of men who glitter bombed conservative journalist Andrew Bolt at a book launch yesterday in Melbourne’s inner north.

Sharing his version of events on his Sky News program last night, Bolt said the two two men sprayed him with “sticky liquid”, glitter and dye before he retaliated by hitting one assailant in the face and groin.

“Bad luck for them of course, I don’t do running and hiding,” said Bolt. “Police are now looking for this young man, who will have a big bruise on the left side of his face, and another bruise between his legs.”

Here’s the CCTV footage of the attack.

Bolt also penned a number of blog posts about his encounter for The Herald Sun. “Watch the fascist Left attack me and get clobbered,” he wrote in one especially stirring screed.

Victoria Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident. “The two males, who were wearing hooded jumpers, have thrown what is believed to be glitter and shaving cream at the victim,” said a police spokesperson. “A short scuffle has taken place before the offenders fled the scene.”

The police say no one was injured. Anyone with any information has been asked to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
