A teenager has been charged with bashing a church minister who was trying to stop a pizza delivery driver from being robbed on Sydney's north shore.
Up to six youths attacked the 17-year-old driver while he was making a delivery at Naremburn on November 9 at about 9.30pm, police say.
Some of the teenage attackers managed to flee with the pizzas.
A 49-year-old Anglican minister heard the fight from his church residence and tried to help the driver.
Police say the minister demanded the pizzas be returned, when at least three of the group attacked him, leaving the minister with extensive bruising to his jaw and fractured ribs.
Media reports name him as Naremburn Cammeray Anglican Church minister Rick Smith, a candidate for Sydney's next Anglican Archbishop.
On Thursday, police arrested a 17-year-old youth and he was charged with affray.
He was granted conditional bail to appear at Hornsby Children's Court on February 13.
Police say they are still trying to find the other youths involved.
