SYCAMORE – A motion to reduce bond was denied Tuesday for a 24-year-old DeKalb man accused of threatening police with a pistol at a Suburban Estates apartment building.

Hassan R. Coleman, of the 1300 block of West Lincoln Highway, asked the court to reduce his bond from $100,000 to $50,000, meaning he could have posted $5,000 to be released while his case is pending. He also would have to be on electronic home monitoring.

The motion was denied because prosecutors indicated the property owner at a DeKalb residence Coleman said he would live in would not allow him to live there, said Assistant Public Defender Chip Criswell.

Coleman is accused of pointing a gun at police May 24 inside a Suburban Estates apartment building, 1400 Twombly Road, DeKalb. A DeKalb County Sheriff's deputy shot Coleman in the arm, and he was later transported to Rockford Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
