As he ran away, the male resident stood up on the fence and shot the fleeing man using the compound bow and arrow, hitting him in the buttocks or lower back area, the New South Wales Police Force wrote in a Facebook post. Police officers attended the scene and seized the bow and arrow as evidence. Inquiries into the incident continue, including the use of the bow and arrow, police added in the statement.
- A homeowner in Australia channeled his inner Robin Hood to shoot a fleeing burglar in the buttocks with an arrow.
