Authorities in Colorado have accused a Christian pastor of luring a gay man to a motel and then robbing him at gunpoint.

Michael T. Abromovich, a pastor at Set Free God's House, a Colorado Springs ministry for the homeless and people suffering from addiction, allegedly solicited the man for sex through a Craigslist ad. According to Denver's CBS Channel 4, Abromovich lured the man to a Motel 6, where he told him he was a U.S. marshal, searched and handcuffed him at gunpoint – police suspect the gun was a paint gun – and robbed him of a laptop, iPad, cell phone, money and debit card.

“Mike then told him they were taking his computers and phone to be sent to the lab to look for evidence,” the arrest warrant affidavit reads.

The 43-year-old Abromovich was arrested last week in Phoenix, Arizona. He was extradited to Denver and faces charges of kidnapping, theft and impersonating a peace officer.
