Two football players at a western Pennsylvania university have been arrested and removed from the team's roster after a fight and robbery that police say temporarily knocked a man unconscious.

Gabriel Yuille and Kahlif Starke-Clemons were charged with robbery, theft, assault and other offenses in connection with the incident early Saturday near Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Information on their lawyers wasn't immediately available.

Police say the 18-year-old Starke-Clemons and 23-year-old Yuille, both of Philadelphia, were among a group of people loitering at a property near the campus. That's about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Police say Starke-Clemons punched a student who had told them to leave. They say Yuille attacked and stole $20 from another student.

A spokeswoman for the state-owned university says they could face suspension.
