14 March 2019

NSW Police said the confrontation happened on Wednesday when the 43-year-old man got out of his vehicle in the driveway of his home in Nimbin, in the north of the state.

A man has been charged after he allegedly fired a bow and arrow at another man, with the victim walking away suffering only a minor injury thanks to his iPhone.

A 43-year-old Australian man's mobile phone was the only thing that stood between him and a pointy arrow during an attack in Australia Wednesday morning, according to police.

The attacker allegedly shot an arrow at the man, which pierced the phone.

An Australian man used his smartphone as a shield to block an arrow that was sacked at him during a skirmish, according to police.

Police later arrived and arrested the attacker, who was aged 39.

While the arrow also hit the resident in the chin, it only left a small laceration which required no medical treatment.

He was taken to the local police station and charged with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

He was released on conditional bail and will face court on April 15.
