ANDREW Bolt was glitter bombed at a book launch in Melbourne yesterday.

The conservative pundit was attacked outside a Carlton restaurant by two men and a cameraman, The Sydney Morning Herald has reported.

Bolt said the two men sprayed him in the face with “sticky liquid with glitter and dye” as he took a selfie with a fan outside the launch.

“I don’t do running and hiding,” he said, claiming to have hit one of the attackers back.

The woman taking a selfie with Bolt was also allegedly pushed.

Victoria Police said the incident was under investigation and nobody was injured.

“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 area. Another male who was in the area at the time appeared to be filming or taking photos.”

Bolt had been at the Il Gambero restaurant on Lygon Street for the launch of RMIT associate professor Steve Kates’s book The Art of the Impossible.
