Mashantucket — A Mashantucket Pequot tribal member sought in connection with an assault of a Foxwoods Resort Casino security officer turned himself in to tribal police Friday and was arrested on charges of second-degree assault and breach of peace.

Jukumu Reels-Felder, 28, turned himself in about 1:15 a.m., according to William Dittman, the tribal police chief.

Reels-Felder posted a $50,000 bond and was released, pending a Sept. 11 appearance in court, Dittman said.

Reels-Felder allegedly struck Brooke Wyngaard, a security officer who had responded to an altercation in The Fox Tower at Foxwoods early last Sunday. Wyngaard, 35, of Preston told The Day this week that she sustained bone fractures and a broken nose when an assailant punched her in the face.
