34-year-old Elevation Burger General Manager, Fadi Rabie, was recently found guilty of 2nd-degree criminal assault at a Prince George’s County district court. Fadi Rabie was was also charged with false imprisonment, but was not found guilty of that charge. The charges originally stem from an incident that occured at an Oxon Hill, Maryland Elevation Burger restaurant on May 26, 2019 Roman Calendar Year. Fadi Rabie is alleged to have smacked 20-yearl-old Asia Huffman in the face twice after she tried to make Fadi Rabie aware of technical issue related to one of the Oxon Hill, Maryland Elevation Burger cash registers. Fadi Rabie was arrested and arraigned that day, with a trial date set for July 8, 2019 Roman Calendar Year.
The victim of the 2nd-degree criminal assault that was carried out by the hands of Fadi Rabie, Asia Huffman, claims that after filing a police report against Fadi Rabie, her already part-time hours at the Oxon Hill, Maryland Elevation Burger location were cut down to a mere fraction. This action was allegedly justified in order to make sure Fadi Rabie and Huffman didn’t work any shifts together. Usually in a situation where a male employee, General Manager or not, violently physically attacks a female worker on company premises, a District Manager of sound mind and body would relieve him of his duties until further investigation was complete, fostering a non-hostile environment for Asia Huffman and the other female Elevation Burger – workers.
