A former gang member is suing the federal government, saying an attack by rival gangsters in a Manitoba prison left him with permanent physical injuries.
In a statement of claim filed earlier this month, ​​​​​Dallas Friesen says he was beaten into unconsciousness by four fellow inmates one day after arriving at Stony Mountain Institution, a federal penitentiary 23 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

Friesen, a former member of the Rock Machine outlaw motorcycle gang, had been transferred from Milner Ridge Correctional Centre on April 26, 2018, to serve an eight-year sentence, according to the document.
Upon arriving at the Manitoba penitentiary, Friesen expressed concerns for his safety to correctional staff, citing issues around gang ties and inmate incompatibilities, the claim says. He told them he had previously been placed in protective custody while serving an earlier sentence in British Columbia.
Despite being assured of his safety by the prison's security intelligence officer, Friesen's statement of claim says he was attacked the next evening.
Left bloody, unconscious
On April 27, according to the claim, an inmate at the gym told Friesen another inmate wanted to speak with him in a washroom. When he entered the washroom, four prisoners assaulted him, including "kicks and blows" to the head and torso, the claim says.
"This is what happens to Rock Machine when they come to Stony," he was allegedly told by an inmate during the attack.
The claim goes on to say Friesen was knocked unconscious. When he regained consciousness, he noticed he was bleeding and there was blood on the floor and walls. An inmate who splashed water on his face to wake him up helped him clean up to prevent the guards from learning about the assault and the bloody mess.
The claim indicates he was "disoriented" from the assault, "dizzy and vomiting" and may have been concussed.
In a state of confusion, the claim says, Friesen took the wrong route back to his cell. When workers at the prison noticed, they allegedly said to him "you were the one who got hit in the gym."
Friesen is claiming he was told to pack up his belongings and escorted to the intake centre. A manager on duty there who began cleaning his wounds commented "you have probably had worse than that" and refused to allow him to be taken to the hospital, the statement of claim says.
A day after the attack, a nurse said he needed to see a doctor, according to his claim, and four days after that, a doctor who assessed him said he "should have received stitches" for his injuries.
Friesen says he "suffered serious and permanent physical injuries" in the attack, including cuts, blurred vision in one eye, headaches and dizziness, as well as severe anxiety, night terrors and post-traumatic stress disorder.
In his statement of claim, filed April 17 in the Court of Queen's Bench of Manitoba, Friesen is suing the attorney general of Canada and Correctional Service of Canada for unspecified damages, costs and a declaration that the defendants breached their fiduciary duty and his Charter rights.
The claim says the defendants were negligent in several areas, including failing to properly address Friesen's concerns about his safety, failing to protect inmates from bodily harm, and failing to provide him with adequate medical care after the alleged assault.
None of the allegations in the statement of claim have been proven in court.
Police chase ends with three arrested for armed robbery
Published Sunday, August 15, 2010 10:55AM CST

Police arrested three male suspects for armed robbery on Saturday night after officers were alerted to a string of incidents that began at a North Kildonan bank.

At about 9:20 p.m., the suspects went to bank in 1100 block of Rothesay Street, where one of the suspects confronted a 24-year-old man and demanded his money and jewellery, officers said.

When the victim handed over some money but refused to give up his jewellery, he was punched and the suspects fled in a vehicle, officers said.

The victim suffered minor injuries that did not require any medical attention.

About ten minutes later, the three suspects went to a restaurant in the 800 block of McLeod Avenue. One of the suspects, armed with a firearm and disguising his appearance, confronted 43-year-old female clerk and demanded money.

She handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect fled to the vehicle. The clerk was not injured.

The three suspects left the scene of that incident, but were spotted by police officers in the area of Regent Avenue and Lagimodiere Boulevard.

The officers attempted to pull the vehicle over; however, it sped away, reaching 100 kilometers per hour.

The brief pursuit ended when police successfully deflated the vehicle's tires in area of the 200 block of Dawson Road.

Dallas Tyler Friesen, 26, of no fixed address, was charged with numerous offences, including two counts of armed robbery. Friesen was previous charged with three counts of armed robbery in relation to a string of incidents in June and July 2006, according to information released by police at the time.

Spyder J Porth, 22, of Winnipeg, was also charged with offences including two counts of armed robbery.

Jeffrey Grant Sesak, 20, of Winnipeg, was charged with two counts of armed robbery, as well as flight from police and the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

All three were taken into custody.

A police chase ended in the arrest of three suspects.

WINNIPEG – A man who allegedly got into a fight with a Winnipeg Police officer… has been captured, after over a week of being on the lam.

This dates back to the morning of July 10th, when officers in the area of Redwood Avenue and Powers Street spotted a man known to police in a cab.
When they pulled the cab over, the man took off and tried to get into a nearby house. One of the officers chased him, but was splashed with hot coffee and pushed down a set of stairs.

The struggle continued, and a loaded gun fell out of a bag around the suspect’s neck, along with a set of handcuffs.
He also tried to pass off a purse containing $11,000 worth of drugs to a 25 year old woman, who was arrested. The drugs were fentanyl, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

A warrant was issued for a 33 year old caucasian man, wanted on over a dozen charges.

He was arrested Friday night at 8:45pm when officers including the K9 Unit and Tactical Support Team got him in an apartment building in the 1700 block of Henderson Highway, not far from McIvor Avenue.
Dallas Tyler Friesen has been detained in custody.
Ever hear of a prison where beatdowns never occurred? Ever hear of protective custody ppl going back into general population without being killed or badly beat? Want to avoid getting beat down or seeing one there is a very good chance if you stay out of the gymnasium that is where beefs are often settled especially planned ones. Better yet don't do illegal drugs and end up in jail. Be nice if the name of the gang that attacked Mr.Friesen was mentioned.
