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 after missing the cut on Jan. 16, but has no memory of a part of that night.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://ow.ly/IULUR ) reports police said Wednesday 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.
