WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

A FOX19 NOW investigator was shot at with a bow and arrow in a city park Tuesday.

Investigative reporter Jody Barr was on assignment at Glenway and Midway avenues when a 27-year-old man fired an arrow from a bow about 1 p.m.

"I was walking back to my news car after I finished a shoot when I stepped up on the curb and I heard the sound of an aluminum arrow hit the concrete," said Barr, 35. "It bounced off my right leg and landed in the grass beside the sidewalk. As soon as I heard the 'tink' I knew exactly what it was. It was the same guy in the park soon after I first arrived walking around Westwood with a compound bow."

Barr turned around toward the playground area and saw his assailant.

"He had the bow in hand and he was staring at me," Barr sad. "So I started taking pictures of him and dialing 911."

A woman who was with the suspect tried to pick the arrow up off the ground.

Barr ordered her away, and Cincinnati police arrived several minutes later.

He turned over his photographs of the suspect, and Daniel Fisher was arrested a short time later, about a block away. He had changed clothes from a bright orange shirt to a lighter one.

"The suspect recklessly shot an arrow from a compound bow in the direction of victim," an incident report states. "The arrow struck a curb near victim before hitting victim on the leg, causing no injury."

Fisher is held at the Hamilton County jail on one count of assault. A judge on Wednesday set his bond at $10,000.

Barr, a veteran investigative reporter, said he has been yelled at, threatened with arrest and even shoved by public officials while on assignment.

"Hopefully this is the first and last time I am ever shot at by a bow and arrow," he said.

FOX19 NOW does not believe the incident was a retaliation to what Barr is investigating.
