A Hagerstown man charged with threatening an ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend with a gun in April remains in jail without bond following a bond hearing Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.
Lateef Roberto Fisher, 34, of 374 Yorkshire Drive, has been in custody without bail since the April 7 incident at a house in the 700 block of George Street in which he allegedly confronted the ex-girlfriend and another man while they were having sex.
Fisher’s attorney, Bernard W. Semler II, said his client wanted the hearing before Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. in hopes that a reasonable bail would be set.
Fisher is charged with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a handgun in a crime of violence, theft and other weapons violations, along with violating an out-of-state protective order, court records said.
Hagerstown police received a 911 call April 7 at 5:39 a.m. from a woman who said there was a man with a gun in her house, the statement of probable cause said. A man, later identified as Fisher, was seen by an officer near the house and caught after a foot chase, the document said.
The woman told police that she and Fisher have a child together, and he had picked up their daughter the day before, the charging document said.
When she and her new boyfriend got to her home that morning, she saw that the baby monitor in her room was turned on, the charging document said. A few minutes later, Fisher entered the room holding a handgun, the document said.
“This ain’t no ... hotel,” Fisher told them, and ordered them downstairs, the charging document said. Fisher told the ex-girlfriend to go upstairs and get some clothes, at which time she called 911, the document said.
Fisher had left the house by the time she came downstairs, the charging document said.
When Fisher was arrested, police found a baby monitor on him, the charging document said. The receiver was on and officers could hear sounds from the bedroom of the ex-girlfriend’s house, the document said.
The woman had a protective order against Fisher that was issued in New York, the charging document said.
Police searched the area, but did not find the gun Fisher allegedly used to threaten the couple, the charging document said.
