PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — A key piece of evidence in an assault trial apparently comes from the suspects cellphone, after an accused biker allegedly pocket-dialled 911 during an attack on a member of a rival biker club.

Pierre Aragon has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and possession of a dangerous weapon.

During her Friday morning opening address Crown attorney Lisa Wannamaker told the six-man, six-woman jury panel that they’ll get a chance to hear a dispatch tape during the two-week trial.

“You’re going to hear the sounds of someone being beaten, the sound of someone moaning in pain,” Wannamaker said, cautioning that the recording also contains strong language.

She added, “You’ll also hear someone say, ‘Fernando, you had a chance to come with us, you want to be a Loner?’”
