A Texas man is facing attempted murder charges in Australia.
Jeffrey Hooten, 49, is accused of attacking his ex-wife's new husband with a crossbow and tomahawk.
Investigators say Hooten flew overseas last week to kill the man.
Officials say he fired a bolt from the crossbow, but the man was able to use his laptop to block it.
Hooten is also accused of hitting the man in the head with a tomahawk.
Authorities say a neighbor helped the victim hold Hooten down until police arrived.
