A committal hearing initially set this morning for two men charged in an alleged March 6 home invasion has been postponed to April 18.

Na-Torriocquie Glenn, 18, of Gainesville, and Joseph Berry, 18, of Oakwood, are charged with one count of armed robbery and ten counts of aggravated assault in the incident.

In a committal hearing, the judge determines whether there is sufficient evidence for a trial and, if so, forwards the case to superior court.

Two other suspects in the incident, Dustin Jones, 17, of Gainesville, and Marquis Berry, 21, of Oakwood, waived their committal hearing and their cases will be bound over to Hall County Superior Court. They face the same charges as Glenn and Joseph Berry.

The alleged home invasion took place in the 900 block of Cooley Drive.

The Hall County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene at 10:40 p.m. and learned that four armed men entered a house and held one adult and nine juveniles at gunpoint, according to a March 7 news release.

After ransacking the house and demanding money and electronics, the suspects fled the house.

While approaching the scene, a deputy noticed a white Buick passenger car on Black Drive traveling with no headlights and tried to make a traffic stop.

The occupants of the vehicle ran from the car, but a sheriff's office K-9 team was able to track them to a house on Jordan Drive.

Two weapons were found in the vehicle and two more were found later in an abandoned home on Jordan Drive, according to the sheriff's office.
