Teen Robbery Defendant Faces Adult Trial

A Hatfield Township teenager accused of robbing a pizza deliveryman at gunpoint will be tried as an adult. 17-year-old Rashawn Fairel of Windsor Court is charged with robbery and related offenses.  He was 16 at the time of the alleged crime in March of last year.  Court documents say he called Main Street Pizzeria in Lansdale and ordered pizza and sodas to be delivered to an address at the Brookside Manor Apartments.  When the deliveryman arrived and leaned into the trunk of his car to get the pizza, Fairel allegedly put a gun to the back of his head and demanded all of his money.
