Honolulu police have made an arrest in the case involving Australian golfer Robert Allenby.

A 32-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday and charged with three counts of second-degree identity theft, three counts of second-degree attempted theft, and one count of unauthorised possession of confidential personal information, police in Hawaii said.

The suspect was arrested at the Oahu Community Correctional Center where he was being held on a contempt warrant for an unrelated incident.

The man has five previous convictions, including one felony drug conviction.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser named him as Owen P. Harbison.

Allenby said he was at a wine bar in Honolulu on January 16 when he lost consciousness.

He initially said he was kidnapped and dumped in a park 10 kilometres away, but a homeless woman told reporters she found him near the wine bar.

“There has definitely been a lot of confusion but the number one thing you should all remember is my story stays exactly the same as the way I told it,” Allenby said late last month.

“I never lied to anyone. I told you what I knew and I told you what someone told me. And that’s the bottom line.”
