Police have arrested a man armed with a weapon made from the snout of a sawfish in Western Australia’s Pilbara.
The sawfish has a long snout, or rostrum, which looks like teeth, but are actually scales, on both sides.
It is alleged the man assaulted an officer by kicking him in the head.
Police say they then found the sawfish sword hidden at his property.
The man has been charged with assaulting a public officer, obstructing police and disorderly behaviour.
