Domestic Violence Intervention Deputies Arrest 1st Degree Assault Suspect. #PGSO


Upper Marlboro, MD…The Prince George’s County Office of the Sheriff’s Domestic Violence Intervention Division (DVID) Deputies, responding to a domestic violence 9-1-1 call, reported the arrest of Carlos Wright of Capitol Heights, MD for First Degree Assault.

According to court documents, on September 4, 2014, DVID Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 600 block of Balboa Avenue in Capitol Heights, MD for a domestic dispute. Deputies arrived at the location and made contact with the victim who stated she was taking Wright’s belongings out of a vehicle, when Wright became upset because there were some items missing and began banging on the victim’s car. The document further states that Wright picked up a pole and began swinging it at the victim, ultimately striking the victim’s car and causing glass to shatter over a minor child sitting in the back seat. He fled the scene prior to the deputies’ arrival.

Deputies initiated a routine warrant check that revealed that there was an outstanding warrant for Wright on a Failure to Appear for Driving while Suspended charge. Deputies canvased the area in search of Wright after speaking to him on the telephone in which he admitted to the incident on Balboa Avenue. DVID Deputies located Wright at Southern Avenue and Old Central Avenue. Wright was arrested without incident and transported to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections.

Wright was also charged with an additional count of First Degree Assault, Malicious Destruction of Property and Reckless Endangerment.
