A Gastonia pastor said the devil led him to a Super 8, where police said he asked a woman for sex.
Officers told Channel 9 that the pastor said he thought the woman was a prostitute and threw a $20 bill at her.
Robert Harris said Wednesday he will tell his congregation that he asked for sex from a woman in a Gastonia motel.
He said he will ask for their forgiveness and it will be up to them to decide if they keep him as their leader
Harris has been the pastor at Harriett Memorial Freewill Baptist Church in Forest City for the past 13 years.
He said he had counseled a couple at the Super 8 in Gastonia 10 years ago.
He went back last night knocking on a woman’s door.
The woman said she did not want to be identified.
“He asked me if I wanted to have some fun,” she said.
She told him no. He left and she called 911.
Her baby was on the bed and she was on the phone with police when Harris came back.
“(He) tried to push himself in on me. Threw me a $20 bill and said, ‘There is more where that came from. Just let me in for a few minutes,’ knowing my 12-month-old daughter was right there with me,” the woman said.
