HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - A preliminary hearing for two men accused of robbing a Holland home and pistol-whipping one of its residents was recessed for two weeks yesterday. Prosecutors presented evidence before Holland District Court Judge Brad Knoll claiming that 20-year-old Carlos Massey of Holland and 21-year-old Jamaal Burke of suburban Chicago broke into the West 14th Street home on April 6th, thinking that those inside had been passed out following a party the night before. However, their entrance woke up the residents, and while unsuccessfully demanding cash from them, the suspects allegedly struck a 20-year-old man with their weapon, causing minor injuries that led to treatment at Holland Hospital. After taking a large-screen TV, the two men fled in a vehicle that was pulled over near South Haven less than an hour later, and were subsequently arrested. Massey and Burke remain held on 100 thousand dollars bond each as the hearing to see if they will stand trial on various charges resumes on May 1st.
