No Charges For Egg Boy Or Fraser Anning Over Incident

'Egg boy' and Senator Fraser Anning have both avoided criminal charges over last month's egging incident in Melbourne.

The teenager who cracked an egg on Senator Fraser Anning's head last month has avoided criminal charges over the incident.

Police on Tuesday confirmed 17-year-old Will Connolly has received an official caution.

Senator Anning, 69, has also avoided charges after striking the boy once he was egged, with police saying he was acting in self defence.

"A decision has been made not to charge the 69-year-old man," the Victoria Police statement read.

"On assessment of all the circumstances, the 69-year-old’s actions were treated as self-defence and there was no reasonable prospect of conviction."

A spokesperson for Anning told 10 daily on Monday that the individual sought by police "is not known in any capacity to the Senator or his Office".

"Senator Anning condemns all acts of violence and has stated numerous times that violence has no place in a civilised society," he said in a statement.
