An 18-year-old man and two 16-year-olds from southeastern Pennsylvania are facing charges stemming from what police say is a botched robbery of an acquaintance that turned deadly.

Pennsylvania State Police said 19-year-old Anthony Rody-Prieto was lured to a country road in East Nottingham Township, Chester County, by the three suspects on Tuesday evening.

Police say the trio met the victim under the pretense of completing a transaction, but intended to rob Rody-Prieto all along.

After the robbery, the three suspects started to flee the scene in a pickup truck. Police said Rody-Prieto grabbed onto the vehicle to stop the suspects and was run over when he fell.

Eighteen-year-old Benjamin Deasey of Cochranville and the two 16-year-old males of Oxford face robbery and involuntary manslaughter charges.
