Former member details beating by biker gang
Judge gives Gloucester suspect bail, orders house arrest
By Julie Manganis
SALEM — A Gloucester man, who police say is the president of the Red Devil motorcycle club whose members are accused of kidnapping and beating a former member, will be released if he makes bail.
Five months after his right hand and wrist were shattered by a ball-peen hammer, that former Red Devil is still wearing a cast and bandages, visible as he raised that hand to swear an oath in court yesterday.
The alleged victim, 56, who until two weeks ago lived in a Revere bungalow, took the stand to testify against his former associates in the Red Devils and Hells Angels motorcycle clubs, describing how he was “put out bad” by the gang after failing to beat up a former member who showed up at a party last September.
He did more than testify, however; he wore a recording device that captured audio and video of one of those former associates, Marc Eliason, 35, of Danvers.
Eliason’s attorney didn’t even try to convince Judge John Lu to release him on bail, joining a second suspect, Sean Barr, 48, of Lynn, in waiving his right to a hearing on the request by prosecutors to hold them and four others without bail.
After a hearing where Lu was shown the surveillance video, he ordered three other suspects: George Brown, 49, of Salem, Brian Weymouth, 41, of Danvers, and Robert Defronzo, 45, of Saugus, held without bail.
Defendant Nikolas Avelis, 54, of Gloucester, said to be the Red Devils’ president, will be released on the condition that he post $5,000 bail and remain confined to his home, monitored by an electronic ankle bracelet.
All six have pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping, mayhem and extortion, the charges stemming from a series of incidents that led to one brutal confrontation inside the Red Devils “clubhouse” in a Byfield strip mall last October.
Under questioning by prosecutor A.J. Camelio, the former Red Devil, a burly man sporting tattoos, a goatee beard and black-rimmed, yellow tinted eyeglasses, described how a former Hells Angels member showed up at a Sweet 16 party for his girlfriend’s daughter.
That man “was put out bad,” said the alleged victim.“He messed up with the club.”
Under the club’s rules, the alleged victim and other Red Devils were required to give the man a beating.
Did they, asked Camelio.
“No, we didn’t,” said the alleged victim.
Soon, his life began to fall apart. Barr, a Hells Angel who worked with the alleged victim, ordered him to quit his job. Then, he was ordered to attend a meeting, where he was told he too was being “put out bad.”
“I took my vest off, my belt buckle, and turned it over to him.”
A couple of weeks later, he got another call. Brown, who was the president of the Hells Angels, and Avelis wanted to meet him at a Dunkin’ Donuts on Route 1 in Saugus. They had heard that he was talking to the Outlaws, another biker gang.
On that afternoon, Oct. 15, Brown told him that he had to go to the clubhouse in Byfield.
All six men were there,
Eliason was more insistent, however. He accused the man 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.
