A 52-year-old Papakura man has been arrested in relation to an attack on a Buddhist monk and the robbery of a Bombay monastery.
Thich Phuoc An, a 58-year-old Vietnamese monk, was knocked out and left with several fractures and a serious head wound after three men smashed into the Quan Am Monastery on August 16.
They stole items from the monastery and left the monk unconscious in handcuffs before attempting to steal his car.
Counties Manukau police have arrested a man through public assistance after the case appeared on Police 10/7 last month.
They are still looking for two other men who were seen on closed-circuit television footage inside the monastery.
A man will appear in the Papakura District Court on October 17 charged with aggravated robbery.
