A man is due to appear in Manukau District Court on charges relating to 15 alleged robberies including the brutal assault of a Papatoetoe dairy owner.

Police arrested the 34-year-old Mt Roskill man during the weekend and said he would appear in court on Monday.

They earlier released CCTV footage of the aggravated robbery of the Papatoetoe dairy on July 7, where a man was shown seriously assaulting a dairy owner with a knife.

The man's knife broke during the attack and he fled the scene, while the dairy owner was remarkably not seriously injured, police said.
