Medieval weapons met modern technology in Australia on Tuesday.
The weapons lost.
The Guardian reported that a 56-year-old man in New South Wales was attacked in his own driveway by a man wielding a crossbow.
The attacker, 49, shot a crossbow bolt, which struck the laptop the victim was carrying.
Then the assailant rushed the man with an ax.
The pair struggled and the victim was hit in the head with the ax before a bystander came to the rescue.
The older man was hospitalized for his head wound, the Guardian reported, while police arrested the attacker and took a crossbow, knives and a piece of wire from him.
The attacker has been charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding, according to the Guardian, and has been refused bail as he awaits a September trial.
