Australian Man Blocks Bow and Arrow Attack With His Phone, Police Say

An Australian man escaped being hospitalized after he managed to use his phone to prevent an arrow from piercing into his chest.

The man was able to shield himself with his phone after he came under attack from a bow and arrow-wielding man, police said Wednesday.

The 43-year-old from Nimbin was getting out of his car Wednesday when a man he knew was standing outside his residence holding a bow and arrow, New South Wales Police said. The man picked up his phone to take a picture of the scene when the armed man “was ready to fire,” police said.
Police say the suspect fired the arrow at the resident which punctured the man’s cell phone. The phone hit him in the chin which gave him a small laceration “that didn’t require medical treatment,” police said.
A 39-year-old man was arrested and charged with “armed with intent to commit an indictable offense, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage,” police said.

He is set to appear in court on Monday.
