SEATTLE (KOMO/CNN) - A Washington State father is on the mend after being shot in the side with an arrow.

The man told police his daughter attacked him.

When airlift medics arrived, they made sure victim Tony Iovenelli didn't move since the arrow was still stuck in his side.

The 35-year-old single father told his neighbor he'd been shot by his teenage daughter with a bow and arrow.

"It was straight sideways, punctured his arm; it was parallel to his arm, right in his body," Dave Blackwood said.

Blackwood said Iovenelli told him his 15-year-old daughter didn't like the fact that he'd grounded her and taken her cell phone away.

"He was in his house and all of a sudden he felt something, and he was shot in the side of the chest and it was his daughter. He pushed her away, tried to get the phone, and she evidently took the phone so he couldn't dial 911," Blackwood said.

Iovenelli said he ran from the house with the arrow still in his side and managed to get in his pick up and drive to Blackwood's home several doors down, asking him to call 911.

"So I went back and got my phone, came out, and I went to his window and he told me his daughter had shot him with a bow and arrow," Blackwood said. "I got up next to his truck, looked inside, and sure enough he had an arrow sticking out of the side of his chest."

A SWAT team found the teen hiding in the woods behind her house with the bow and extra arrows.
