Police seek arrest of mother of disabled man left in woods

Posted:

PHILADELPHIA (AP)- Authorities say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of the mother of a severely disabled man left in the woods for several days near a Philadelphia park.

Police say 41-year-old Nyia Parler of Philadelphia will face charges including aggravated assault, reckless endangering, neglect of a care-dependent person and kidnapping.

Authorities say her 21-year-old son has cerebral palsy and is quadriplegic. He was found Friday night near Cobbs Creek Park, lying in leaves covered with a blanket next to a wheelchair and a Bible. He was hospitalized with dehydration and other injuries.

Police believe he was left there before his mother boarded a bus Monday for Maryland, to visit her boyfriend.

Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detectives division says the victim survived only "by the grace of God."
