An burglar was struck by an arrow to the buttocks as he attempted to flee from the scene of his crime in Sydney, Australia.
The intruder had broken into a 68-year-old man’s home to steal various items including cash and car keys and was attempting to steal his Nissan X-Trail, when he was confronted by the homeowner brandishing a bow and arrow.
Surprised by the angry homeowner, the intruder crashed the X_Trail into a fence, but escaped the vehicle and jumped the fence towards a parked getaway car, a Mazda Tribute. However, the homeowner managed to hit the man in the buttocks as he fled, leaving him with undetermined injuries.
Despite the wound, the intruder, described as wearing a black, short-sleeved shirt, managed to flee the scene in the getaway car and his identity remains unknown.
Police officers attended the scene at Wattle Grove in south-west Sydney on Sunday afternoon and confiscated the weapon while they investigate the incident.
