HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two Hartford residents have been arrested and charged with assault on accusations they attacked a Trinity College student in March 2012.

Pedro Carillo and Veronica Marquez were charged Thursday with second-degree assault and conspiracy to commit second-degree assault. The 20-year-old Carillo is in custody for a separate charge.

The 27-year-old Marquez was taken into custody without incident Thursday night. Neither is a Trinity student.

The Associated Press could not verify Friday if they are represented by lawyers.

Christopher Kenny, a sophomore at the time, was beaten and kicked in the face as he walked with a friend near the Hartford campus between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on March 4, 2012. His jaw and cheekbone were broken and he underwent surgery.

Parents complained about campus safety and students rallied to demand increased security.
