Felony charges filed against Cal Poly football players
August 23, 2014
The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney filed multiple felony charges Friday against five Cal Poly players accused of the armed robbery of a fraternity house on Aug. 10, according to a press release.
Cameron Akins, a wide receiver, is accused of donning a black ski mask, carrying a 38 caliber Derringer handgun and demanding money and drugs from several men at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house. When confronted by police, Akins allegedly fought and bit an officer.
Even though Akins, 19, of Monrovia was the only player who demanded money while brandishing a firearm, the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office has also filed multiple felony charges against the other four suspects. Dominique Alize Love, 19, of Poway; Jake Anthony Brito, 18, of Cypress; Kristaan Sterling Ivory, 20, of Los Angeles; and Cortland Josiah Fort, 20, of Fontana have been charged with conspiracy to commit residential robbery, attempted residential robbery, attempted burglary, and false imprisonment.
Akins, who was arrested at the fraternity house, is also charged with resisting arrest through threats or violence.
Officers located Fort, the driver of the car, allegedly fleeing the scene with the light off, the district attorney’s complaint says. Fort was also arrested on Aug. 10. Police then located the other suspects and arrested each of them on the Cal Poly campus on Aug. 11.
All five suspects are scheduled for arraignment on Monday.
