Five Cal Poly football players have been suspended from the team indefinitely after being arrested on suspicions that they robbed a fraternity at gunpoint.

Running backs Kristaan Ivory and Jake Brito, cornerbacks Dominique Love and Cortland Fort, and receiver Cameron Akins have been implicated in the incident, which reportedly occurred at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house early Sunday morning.

Akins, who was arrested at the scene, could face charges of robbery with a firearm, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest. Fort, who officers said fled the scene, was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Ivory, Brito and Love were apprehended later.

"Cal Poly recognizes the seriousness of these charges and will move swiftly to take the appropriate responses,” read a university statement. “The university will conduct internal investigations into possible student conduct violations. As always, any violation of the university's student conduct policies will not be tolerated and will be dealt with summarily, to ensure that student health and safety and the university's academic environment are maintained."

Ivory is the most high-profile player of the five arrested. He rushed for 1,113 yards and six touchdowns as a junior last season, and was named to the preseason All-Big Sky Conference team this year.
