Police say the 56-year-old victim was carrying a laptop on his driveway in Somersby when a man shot a loaded crossbow at him.
When the arrow hit the man's laptop, the attacker ran at the 56-year-old, striking him in the head with an axe.

The 56-year-old man was taken to hospital with a head wound.
The 49-year-old man was arrested and police say they took a crossbow, knives and piece of wire from him.
He was charged with attempted murder and malicious wounding.
