  • iPhone shields Australian man from bow and arrow attack

A 43-year-old resident of the New South Wales town of Nimbin was getting out of his auto on Wednesday morning when he spotted a man, allegedly holding a bow and arrow, standing outside his home.

The incident began when the attacker, carrying a bow and arrow, confronted the man outside his house, police said.

The arrow went right through the phone, which hit the man in the chin.

NSW Police confirmed in a statement that officers were called to the 43-year-old's Nimbin home at around 9am yesterday following the alleged altercation.

The arrow was allegedly fired after the resident raised his phone to photograph the confrontation - only for the device to become an unlikely shield.

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.

However, due to the high impact made by the arrow that hit the phone, a small gash was caused that didn't require significant medical treatment.

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

He was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on April 15.
