IPhone shields Australian man from bow and arrow attack

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

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.

The police statement did not identify the model of the phone. The incident took place in the city of Nimbin in New South Wales, Australia.

The man held his phone up to snap a photo of the armed man, who is alleged to have fired an arrow at the resident, which ended up piercing his phone.

Police later arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene, where he has since been charged with assault and damage offences.

The 43-year-old, from Nimbin, 60km west of Byron Bay in the state's north, was arriving at his home when he spotted a man known to him allegedly armed with a bow and arrow at about 9am on Wednesday.

This would sound like a tall tale, except the police posted photos on social media of the pierced phone showing the arrow tip extending out through the screen protector.

He was granted conditional bail to appear in Lismore Local Court on Monday 15 April.
