A man attacked his girlfriend’s gay friend following allegations made by the man that he had been having relations with her boyfriend.

Gay man Allan Binns reportedly told his friend that he had performed a sexual act on her boyfriend and on hearing the allegation boyfriend Lee Parr confronted the allegation, which later resulted in an attack on the man.

Parr, 31, was called to Lincoln Magistrates Court on the count of causing actual bodily harm.

According to This Is Lincoln, the prosecution for Mr.

Binns said:

"Mr Binns was a friend of Mr Parr's girlfriend. He believes there was a homophobic motive to the assault. He was at home when he was woken up by banging on the front door. Mr Parr entered and punched him. In his personal impact statement, Mr Binns said he does not feel safe in his own home and places a cabinet over the spyhole in the front door."

In defense Parr admitted to the allegations of actual bodily harm but refused on the account of homophobic intent on the attack last year on November 11 where Binns was left with a cut to his right eyebrow and pain in his left shoulder following the punch.

"My client is not, in any way, homosexual, Mr Binns is trying to claim he had an affair with my client. That seems to suggest my client is a homosexual – he is not. Mr Binns made the extraordinary claim that he had sex with Mr Parr.

"That allegation is completely untrue. It was made to cause trouble between Mr Parr and his girlfriend and it seems he has achieved exactly that."

Mr Parr assaults Mr Binns he accepts this was not the right way to go about it and this has led to the separation from his girlfriend."

The sentencing will be held on April 1.
