A competency hearing scheduled Tuesday for a Muskogee man charged with robbery has been rescheduled, said Assistant District Attorney Tim King.

The state is waiting for Joel Phillip Banks, 28, to receive treatment through Oklahoma Forensic Center before continuing to prosecute him, King said.

Banks is charged with one count of robbery with a weapon for allegedly taking more than $400 from a Kum & Go employee. Charges were filed against Banks in April.

He is accused of using a .38-caliber pistol to intimidate the employee and robbing him of $407 that belonged to Kum & Go, court documents state.

The competency hearing has been rescheduled for April 8.
