This hits pretty close to home

  • Curtis Phagoo is a well-known musician and business person who I’ve come to know through the local music scene. This is his description of a harrowing experience this past Friday night in our city. It’s a reminder to be very careful and vigilant with your personal safety.

    Re-printed with permission by Curtis Phagoo

    Addressing personal experiences is not an easy thing for me to do, but my experience this weekend needs to be told, as I believe many people close to me and working in the same industries as me are in danger of the same thing happening to them.

    On Friday night, at 10pm myself and a friend ran into each other outside an establishment and were catching up when we were attacked by 3 men, one using a cane as a weapon.

    I also think it is important to note that I am not naming the establishment or general location. Unfortunately, I believe it is important to know that this sort of thing can happen anywhere in Red Deer. We need to understand that this is not some sort of isolated incident. This happened at a busy time, 10 feet directly outside the entrance, not some dark corner or alley.

    Now let’s talk about the 3 men. These men were more like zombies than men. They showed no emotion, or remorse. I don’t know for sure, but I would assume they were in some sort of drug-induced state. It’s hard to say exactly what happened, but this is what I remember;

    They came around the corner and attacked with the cane, dropping one of us. Then they started kicking and reaching…maybe for keys (I think the aim was to steal a vehicle). 

    I think they were expecting less of a fight, or maybe just one person to be there, but what started as a very aggressive act quickly died as they returned to a Zombie like state of confusion and we were able to escape into the establishment.  Make no mistake, this was an incredibly violent act hospitalizing one of us. This ended very badly, but could have been much worse, if not fatal. 

    In sharing this story I hope that people will be more active in their own safety, as I wasn’t.  I think it is really important to be in groups. Going for a smoke? Grabbing something from your car? Headed home? Go in numbers! 

    The more the better. We need to be proactive in protecting ourselves and one another.  It is really dangerous out there.
