The 24-year-old Ypsilanti man who police say hinted that he had a gun while attempting to rob a homeowner had his competency hearing rescheduled this week, according to court records.
The hearing to see if Isom Hamilton is competent to stand trial was moved to April 9. Court records indicate that the competency report was not ready yet.
Hamilton is charged with armed robbery, first-degree home invasion, second-degree home invasion and third-degree home invasion, police said.
Police say Hamilton broke into a home at 4:40 p.m. Nov. 20 in the 1300 block of West Cross Street in Ypsilanti and was seen coming out of the window. When the homeowner confronted him, Hamilton stuck his hand in his pocket, insinuating that he had a gun before fleeing, according to police.
Hamilton was found a short time later hiding in a bush at a nearby home. A laptop, game systems, video camera, digital camera, jewelry, small bags of loose change, numerous video games and other electronic items -- all believed to be stolen -- were recovered, according to police.
Hamilton remains held at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $35,000 cash or surety bond.
