Honolulu PD: No arrests in Allenby case, investigation ongoing


Four days after Robert Allenby says he was kidnapped, beaten and robbed, the Honolulu Police Department issued its first public statement about the case.

The news, though, was that there is no news.

No arrests have yet to be made and suspects are still being investigated.

"Detectives are reviewing witness statements and gathering security video footage," read the statement, issued around 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday. "They are also looking into recent charges made on Mr. Allenby's credit card. No arrest has been made.

"Detectives have opened second degree robbery and fraudulent use of credit card investigations. Second degree robbery is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment; fraudulent use of credit cards is punishable by up to five years."

Following a missed cut at the Sony Open, Allenby went to the Amuse Wine Bar in Honolulu on Friday night. While he says his memory is hazy, there is video footage of the PGA Tour veteran leaving the establishment with other people. He was later found in a park with abrasions on his face and his left eye nearly swollen shut.

Allenby thanked the homeless woman who helped him after the attack, Charade Keane, by giving her a $1,000 gift card on Monday, but some remain skeptical about the events of the evening. While the Aussie has stuck firmly to his story, there have been conflicting reports about how far away from the bar he was when he was found and who put him in a cab and paid for his ride back to the hotel.

The 43-year-old withdrew from this week's Humana Challenge early Tuesday.
