A man was arrested, charged and convicted of assault after cutting off a woman’s hair and using it to choke her, prosecutors in Canada said.

Now, 26-year-old Shane Sumner of Winnipeg, was sentenced to serve 3 years in prison.

According to the police investigation, Sumner and Jordan Cooper, beat and tortured the young woman after they accused her of working for a rival gang.

Cooper, who was described as the main aggressor in the attack, was sentenced to serve four years in prison.

Sumner and Cooper, both members of the Manitoba Warriors gang, were in an apartment when a woman claimed that the victim belonged to the Indian Posse gang.

Cooper blamed the Indian Posse gang for killing his father. Cooper cut off the woman’s long ponytail and then used it to choke her, while Sumner punched her in the face.

Cooper later gave the woman a fork and ordered her to comb the hair, saying that he planned to hang it on his wall. Cooper and Sumner forced the woman into a bathtub, where Cooper urinated on her.
