Ex-member details beating by biker gang

(Continued)

SALEM, Mass. —

That’s when Defronzo told him that if he didn’t hold his hand still, Defronzo would hold it for him, the alleged victim said.

The man pointed to the two places where the hammer came down on his hand and wrist and described the injuries.

“Someone gave me a bag of ice. I don’t know who it was.”

Weymouth and Eliason, meanwhile, had taken the man’s keys and went to Revere to take the bike, the alleged victim said.

“Sean gave me a month to get the title,” the man said. And Defronzo allegedly told him, “If I went to the cops, he’d be by the house.”

What did that mean, the prosecutor asked.

“I couldn’t answer that,” the man said.

But getting the title wasn’t easy. He still owed money on the bike, $1,255. Weeks turned into months.

Barr at one point suggested that someone might be able to help him get the money, the alleged victim said.

Eliason was more insistent, however, the man said. He accused the alleged victim of blowing him off. If he didn’t hand over the title the next day, Eliason allegedly told the man, “He was going to break my legs, kill me, but before that, he was going to rape my girlfriend in front of me and go after my son.”

He said he would be back the next day.

Jeff Wood, an FBI agent who oversees gang cases on the North Shore, outfitted the man with a recording device hidden on him.

In the resulting video, Eliason is seen driving up in a white pickup.

“How you doing, Eli? I got some good news. I have it.” He told Eliason that his girlfriend had borrowed the money.

The alleged victim was cautious. “I just want to make sure, what happened to my hand, I appreciate what you said, how it would have been a lot worse,” he says, trying to find out whether there was more in store for him.
