CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo. — A man was charged with three felony counts of assault motivated by discrimination Monday, Aug. 3.

The Camden County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Allen Loftis with assault and peace disturbance after he allegedly punched three people at a bar because he believed they were homosexual.

Loftis told the arresting officer he, “does not let gay stuff go on.”

At least one victim was injured.

“It is vital to our success as a community that we are able to go about our lives without fear of assault or of harassment,” Office of the Prosecuting Attorney PA Heather Miller said.

Loftis is being held on a $75,000 surety bond in Camden County.
