PGPD located the suspects in a Howard County hotel on Friday. The preliminary investigation suggests Felder and the victim got into a dispute that turned physical over damage to Felder’s car potentially caused by the victim when he opened his car door.

Felder then called Wright to the scene. When Wright arrived, he assaulted the victim. The suspects are in a relationship.

Wright is charged with first and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Felder is also charged with first and second-degree assault and the solicitation of assault in the second degree.
