Honolulu Police: Arrest Made in Robert Allenby Case

February 12, 2015

HONOLULU (AP) Honolulu police say there’s been an arrest in connection with credit cards stolen from Australian golfer Robert Allenby.

Allenby was in Honolulu for the Sony Open when he said was beaten and robbed during a night out on Jan. 16.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that local police said Wednesday that a 32-year-old man already in custody at Oahu Community Correctional Facility was arrested.

Allenby posted photos of a bloodied forehead and swollen eye to his Facebook account. He says he has no recollection of anything from about 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. the night he was at a wine bar.

Police opened investigations into second-degree robbery and fraudulent charges on Allenby’s credit cards.
