Police searching for egg boy attacker

THE man who allegedly kicked "Egg Boy" while he was being held to the ground is being sought by police.

Will Connolly, the 17-year-old dubbed "Egg Boy", gained worldwide notoriety after footage emerged of him cracking an egg on Senator Fraser Anning's head after the New Zealand terror attack.

Afterwards Senator Anning turned around and struck Connolly twice before he was tackled to the ground by a group of supporters.

Victoria Police are now appealing for public assistance in identifying a man who they say kicked the 17-year-old numerous times while he was being held down by others.

Investigators have released a picture of a male they want to question over the assault, which happened on March 16 in Moorabbin.

Senator Anning was last week censured by parliament for "shameful and pathetic" comments linking the Christchurch terror attacks to Muslim immigration.

The Queenslander was rebuked by his colleagues on Wednesday for blaming Muslim migrants for the horrific attack last month in which a white supremacist killed 50 worshippers at mosques.

Senator Anning originally stood for One Nation and entered parliament after the party's Malcolm Roberts was disqualified for being a dual citizen.
