AN arrest warrant has been issued for a man who allegedly threw a tub of yoghurt at ABC journalist Leigh Sales at an event in Perth.

Matthew Alexander Cailes was charged with two counts of assault after the incident.

It occurred during Sales’ speech about her new book, Any Ordinary Day, at the Disrupted Festival of Ideas in July.

Cailes, who later apologised to “Lisa” in a Seven News report, was due to front Perth Magistrates Court on Monday but failed to attend.
