SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The son of Dauphin County's District Attorney was one of two Millersville University football players arrested after police say they attacked another man on the street and took his phone and wallet.

According to Pennsylvania State Police Carlisle, the 21-year-old victim from Mifflinburg was walking in the area of North Earl Street and Lancaster Drive when he was approached by Kenneth Brown, 18, of Ardmore and Connor Marsico, also 18, of Harrisburg. Marsico is the son of Ed Marsico, Jr., Dauphin County District Attorney.

Officials said Brown struck the victim in the face, and Marsico kicked him. Brown then took the victim's cellphone and wallet, according to authorities.

Brown and Marsico were both charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, conspiracy and harassment. Brown also faces charges of robbery, theft and criminal mischief.

The accused were taken to Cumberland County Prison pending arraignment.

The Marsico family released the following statement about the arrest:

"We are shocked by the events that have been reported regarding some college students, which unfortunately included our son. It deeply saddens us to learn that someone was hurt. Our son has and will cooperate with authorities, and our role as parents is to continue to encourage him to do so. We expect this to be addressed as a matter of course within the criminal justice system and hope the personal aspects of this difficult situation remain a private family matter."
