A 65-year old Roanoke priest is charged with fondling a 20-year old woman.
Police say the incident happened at a Westin Hotel in Detroit, Michigan.
According to officials the woman is a maid at the hotel.
She's accused Assad Awad of fondling her when she was cleaning the room.
The woman was apparently vacuuming when Awad allegedly grabbed her.

Awad is in his 25th year as pastor of the Saint Elias Catholic Church.
This is the second time he's been charged with a sex-related offense.
In 1987 he was accused of soliciting a police woman working undercover as a prostitute.
But General District Judge Edward Kidd dismissed the case ruling Awad did nothing illegal.

A teenager from Charlottesville is the first woman to use the state's parental notification law to get a judge's permission to have an abortion.
Planned Parenthood officials say the 17-year old asked for the judicial waiver because she was afraid "her parents would kill her" if they found out what she wanted.
The new law requires Virginia doctors to notify a parent or guardian of a girl 17 and under, before performing an abortion.
Planned Parenthood has challenged the law in federal court.
David Nova of Planned Parenthood of the Blue Ridge says he hasn't heard of any similar cases yet in western Virginia.
