Man’s Phone Blocks Arrow From Attacker

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you come across a story about a man that uses his phone to block an arrow from an attacker. Police say a 43-year-old Australian man was confronted and came under attack outside his home by an attacker carrying a bow and arrow.

According to the report, the arrow was fired after the resident raised his phone to record the confrontation. Fortunately for the victim, the device became a shield, blocking the arrow that had been fired by the attacker.

Police say the arrow pierced the victim’s phone, knocking it back into his face. He suffered a small cut but was otherwise unhurt.

The phone that blocked an arrow shot by attacker.

The shooter was a 39-year-old man that was later arrested at the scene of the attack.

According to police, the attack happened in the New South Wales town of Nimbin.

The attacker was charged with assault and property damage and will appear in court next month.

  1. It’s amazing and miraculous the guy’s phone stopped that arrow. If that criminal was using a single bevel broadhead, it would have been a different ending.

      Has anyone taken into consideration that the phone might have been the target all along? I could easily shoot a phone out of someone’s hand within 30 yds.

      I don’t think a broadhead would make much of a difference on penetration of a phone unless it was being held immobile. It would most likely yank the phone out of his hand and possibly not had as much penetration, but that’s just my opinion.

  5. The place (NIMBIN) is a renowned drug area in NSW, plenty of hippies living there, lucky it was only a target arrow, but then there could be more to this story than what has been printed

    Australia had a vast gun turn-in and many valuable guns were destroyed. Bolt action guns were confiscated as they were “evil looking.” Our retired sheriff said the Aussies are trying to figure out why crime has increased. Same in other countries that have had gun bans.
