In a stroke of good luck, an Australian man who had an arrow fired at him managed to block the shot with his mobile phone.

Miraculously, the arrow pierced the man's iPhone, going through the device and coming out the other side, but only knocked his face, leaving him with a small cut but otherwise unharmed.

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.

The 43-year-old first noticed the alleged attacker - armed with a bow and arrow - in the driveway of his home as he left his vehicle.

The BBC reports the 43-year-old was outside of his home in Nimbin, New South Wales, when the 39-year-old suspect is said to have approached him, bow and arrow in hand.

The arrow pierced the phone, saving the man from serious injury.

The Richmond police officers were called at the scene.

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

He was charged with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault causing bodily harm and malicious damage.

The alleged attacker is now out on bail and is set to appear in court in April.
