The five Cal Poly football players arrested in connection with an attempted robbery at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house made their first appearance in court on Monday.

Cameron Akins, Cortland Fort, Kristaan Ivory, Jake Brito and Dominique Love are all co-defendants.

The five were scheduled to be arraigned Monday, but the defense asked to push back the date. The arraignment has been rescheduled for Sept. 15, where the players will be charged and enter their plea.

The charges filed against the players include multiple counts of conspiracy to commit residential robbery in concert, attempted residential robbery in concert, attempted residential burglary, resisting arrest by threat and violence, false imprisonment, as well as several gun enhancements.

During the session, Superior Court Judge Hugh F. Mullin III approved a stay-away order, preventing any of the players from making contact with the residents of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house.

Mullin also raised Akins’ bail from $60,000 to $110,000.
