Last Thursday, a Canadian court released surveillance footage of the beating of Carlos Larmond, a terrorism suspect being held in the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Center.
The video shows two men attacking Larmond on March 3 in a common area of the jail as other inmates look on.
A lawyer for one of the attackers, 29-year-old Terrence Wilson, said Larmond had tried to convert his client to Islam on several occasions. The efforts started out friendly, but soon turned aggressive with Larmond telling Wilson “he was going to kill him in his cell.”
According to the CBC, Larmond suffered a broken hand in the attack, along with multiple scrapes and bruises.
Larmond and his twin brother, Ashton Larmond, were arrested by the RCMP in early January for terrorism-related activities.
Larmond is facing one count of associating with a terrorist group and one count of attempting to leave Canada to commit terrorist acts abroad.
