Authorities in Pennsylvania were investigating an incident involving New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Thursday.

WTAE-TV reported that police said charges of aggravated assault and robbery were pending against Revis for an alleged assault in Pittsburgh’s south side. The station reported Revis wasn’t in custody and it wasn’t clear whether he was still in the state.

Police said later that Revis could face terroristic threat and conspiracy charges.

Sources told the station that that two men were punched at around 2:30 a.m. A police officer saw Revis talking to two people and when he circled back around the two were knocked out and Revis was nowhere to be found.

Revis’ attorney Blaine Jones said in a statement that Revis was the one who was assaulted and sought medical attention because of it.

“Mr. Revis came home to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit family and friends. During that time, Mr. Revis went by a location in the South Side that he is in the process of developing,” Jones said. “Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least five people. Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors.”

Police reportedly have cellphone video from the alleged victims.

The New York Jets told TMZ Sports they were aware of the situation and have spoken with Revis.
