When the resident raised his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man, an arrow was allegedly fired at him - piercing through the middle of his phone.

The attacker then fired an arrow but it hit the resident's smartphone and pierced it.

The New South Wales police shared this photo of the arrow and the phone.

The attacker allegedly shot an arrow at the man, which pierced the phone. The reports further suggest that the arrow struck the iPhone, with the arrowhead partly passing through the device.

The 43-year-old from Nimbin was getting out of his auto Wednesday when a man he knew was standing outside his residence holding a bow and arrow, New South Wales Police said.

It left a small laceration that didn't require medical treatment.

He was taken to the local police station and charged with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

A 39-year old man was arrested at the scene and charged, police said.

He was granted conditional bail and will appear in court on April 15.
