A man is lucky to have walked away with only a small laceration on his chin after another man shot him with a bow and arrow in Nimbin

It left a small cut, but he did not require medical treatment.

It's a good thing that he did - an arrow that could have easily skewered him was stopped by his phone. "I was trying to deter him from entering the property", he said, claiming the issue centered on a property eviction at the Nimbin residence.

A confrontation occurred outside the man's house in Nimbin, which is approximately 110 miles south of Brisbane.

The 43-year-old lifted up his phone to take a photo, which prompted the attacker to engage the bow and fire the arrow.

Cops say the armed male fired the arrow at the man, piercing his smartphone, which caused the device to hit him in the chin.

A man has been charged after he allegedly fired a bow and arrow at another man in Nimbin which pierced through the man’s phone and hit him in the chin

That was the case for a 43-year-old man in Australia who came under attack by another man, according to police.

The man was charged with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

Here's the story from the New South Wales police, complete with lots of "allegedlys". He was reportedly granted conditional bail and is set to appear in court next month.

Sadly, his screen protector was no match for the sharpened arrow.
