City Councilman Eric Costello says police told him two attackers demanded money after scaling the fence into the short-term rental property.

According to Wilson’s social media pages, he had appealed for people to join the party for a $5 door fee.

The party was held despite Maryland’s ban on gatherings of more than 10 people in response to coronavirus outbreak.
