United Australia Party leader Craig Kelly has been egged in Melbourne this afternoon, with police now investigating.

In a video posted to social media by an activist group, the MP is struck on the head with the egg before a heated verbal discussion ensues.

It’s understood Mr Kelly was at Fawkner Park in South Yarra for a meet-and-greet with UAP supporters.

The woman who egged Mr Kelly and the person filming hurled insults at Mr Kelly, who remained seated throughout the incident.

“You’re a disgrace to democracy,” Mr Kelly told the woman after he was struck with the egg.

“Go away.”

Victoria Police has confirmed it is investigating, with a witness on a bicycle also injured in the aftermath.

“Police are investigating reports a 58-year-old man was assaulted in South Yarra on Friday, 8 April,” a police statement read.

“It (is) understood two women were involved in an incident where eggs were smashed onto the man’s head at Fawkner Park about 1.25pm, before running to a vehicle which was believed to be waiting nearby.

“The man, from NSW, was not injured. A witness on a pushbike followed the women, parking his bike in front of the car.

“It is alleged the male driver ran over the cyclist’s foot. He sustained minor injuries.

“The cyclist then followed the vehicle, which stopped nearby on Toorak Road.

“The driver gave his details to the cyclist.

“The driver and two women then left the scene in the vehicle.

“Investigations into the identity of those involved remain ongoing.”

Witnesses are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Will Connolly – who later became widely known as “Egg Boy” – cracked an egg over Mr Anning’s head while filming with a mobile phone.

Mr Anning responded by punching the teen, who was tackled to the ground by some of the then-senator’s supporters.
