A man avoided hospital after being shot at by an alleged bow-and-arrow wielding assailant, with his smart phone absorbing the blow.

Authorities said the man drove into his driveway and left his vehicle after noticing another person - who is known to him - standing outside his home while armed with a bow and arrow.

The man's life was saved because he chose to take a photo of his attacker.

According to police, the only injury was a small laceration on the victim's chin caused by the momentum of the arrow's impact, which sent the phone flying into his face.

Officer's from Richmond Police District were called and arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene.

However, Matthew was forced to return to prison a year ago after an appeals court overturned a judge's initial ruling. Matthew is said to be using the money to pay his rent so he can save up for a house of his own in the future.

The 43-year-old man was confronted by an attacker with a bow and arrow outside his house in the small town on Nimbin in New South Wales on Wednesday.

The 43-year-old was left with a small cut on his chin following the freakish incident, but pictures released by the police show it could have been much. much worse.

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.

The suspect was granted conditional bail and is expected to appear in court on April 15.
