Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. — Police have arrested a second former Seton Hall men's basketball player on charges stemming from an armed robbery in New Jersey.

Police arrested Kelly Whitney in Newark on Thursday night. Kathy Carter, spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, says the 27-year-old acted as an accomplice with former junior forward Robert Mitchell.

The 23-year-old Mitchell has pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of robbing eight people at gunpoint in a South Orange home on Monday.

Mitchell was kicked off the team Sunday. Whitney is a Chicago native who was a standout for the Pirates through the 2006 season.

Carter says Whitney faces robbery, kidnapping and weapons charges. No court appearance has been scheduled and it's not clear if he has a lawyer.
