NEW BRUNSWICK — Two former Rutgers football players were indicted Wednesday on robbery and conspiracy charges in connection with a home invasion that occurred at a dorm room on the Busch Campus in Piscataway in December 2014.

Lloyd Terry Jr., 21, of Wrightstown, and Jamil Pollard, 22, are charged with conspiracy, robbery, burglary, and theft.

The victim was Dylan Mastriana, who was a student at Rutgers and was living at Davidson Hall, according to the indictment.

The indictment said Terry and Pollard illegally entered the dorm on Dec. 10, 2014, and stole one kilogram or less of marijuana from Mastriana.

Authorities in September 2015 said Terry and Pollard also took cash from Mastriana.

Terry was indicted, along with former players Andrew Boggs and Tejay Johnson, in December 2015 on several counts of armed robbery, robbery, armed burglary, conspiracy, theft,  and weapons offenses, for a series of home invasions in New Brunswick in April 2015.

Mastriana, who was not a football player, was indicted along with Boggs and Johnson for also being involved with a home invasion in April 2015.

Another defendant in the home invasions robberies, former Rutgers student, Jianan Chen, was named in two other indictments Wednesday that charge him with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Another former football player, Ruhann Peele, who is facing charges for his alleged involvement in an assault on Delafield Street last year in New Brunswick, was indicted Wednesday for an unrelated assault in October 2015.

The assault on Delafield Street involved all former Rutgers football players and resulted in the victim receiving a broken jaw, according to authorities.

The indictment handed up Wednesday charges Peele with assaulting a man named Kevin Finnegan on Oct. 9, 2015 in New Brunswick.

Terry, Pollard, Peele, Mastriana and Chen are all free on bail.
