Robin of Loxley draws his bow

Robin of Loxley draws his bow and shoots

A tale of Robin Hood and his cousin Robin bastard!

With the great skill of Robin Hood a man in Nimbin, NSW drew his bow, aimed it at a bloke and let fly.

A man had a lucky escape when he was shot with an arrow that went right through the mobile phone he was using to photograph his alleged attacker. NSW Police said the confrontation happened on Wednesday when the 43-year-old man got out of his car in the driveway of his home in Nimbin, in the north of the state. He noticed another man there, who was known to him, armed with a bow and arrow.

Man uses mobile phone as shield in alleged bow and arrow attack

The driver held up his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man, who then allegedly shot at him.

The arrow went right through the phone, which hit the man in the chin.

The small cut from that impact was his only injury.

Police arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene and charged him with being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

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

    It reminds me of stories I’ve read where the young officer survived a sniper’s bullet because it hit his heavy cigarette case, or his bible. Lucky man should buy a lotto ticket.

    I agree, PF, that he should buy a lottery ticket. It reminds me of the story of the ex-AIF who found a spent bullet and wore it around his neck as a lucky charm. At the Sydney domain one day a demented preacher hurled a heavy bible at him which struck the bullet and fell harmlessly to the ground.
    I am only guessing here but if that arrow had been an inch away he could have been killed with the arrow going clean through his eye.
    Nimbin, eh? Home of Green potheads?

    Brilliant marksmanship, not your everyday Nimbin potshot. Must visit the archery club next time I’m in the northern rivers area.

    The question is , was he aiming for him or his mobile phone?
