MELBOURNE — An Australian man had a lucky escape while confronting a man armed with a bow outside his home, as a loosed arrow pierced the mobile telephone he was holding to take a photograph of the incident, Australian police said on Thursday.
The 43-year old man had returned on Wednesday to find the man, who was known to him, waiting outside his home in Nimbin, a small east coast town around 150 kilometres south of Brisbane.
"The resident held up his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man who then engaged the bow and was ready to fire," reads a police statement.
"It’s alleged the man fired the arrow at the resident which pierced through the man’s mobile phone causing the phone to hit him in the chin. It left a small laceration that didn’t require medical treatment." A 39-year old man was arrested at the scene and charged, police said.
