UNION, Mo. (KMOX) –  A man charged in connection with the beating of a man at a Sullivan campground last weekend has surrendered himself to authorities.

32-year-old Joshua Lueken was described as the “main suspect” in the assault on 32-year-old Jeffery Pemberton of Cuba Missouri.

Lueken turned himself in late Thursday night.

Pemberton was punched, kicked, tied to a chair and beaten with a pipe Saturday at the Arapaho campground.
