Family of Princeton man accused of abducting children say they forgive him

Posted: Updated:

Marvin Boze, the Princeton man accused of abducting five children, is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.

Boze was arrested Friday hours after a security guard at Duke Energy found the kids. At least one of them was tied up.

"He is still a husband, he is still a father," that is what Angel Boze and her daughter, Faith Walker, told 14 News about Marvin on Sunday.

They explained what they went through and how they are holding up in the days after the abduction.

"Nobody expected that things would escalate the way that they did," says Angel Boze.

On Thursday night, while Angel and her daughter Faith were at work, Angel's four children and Faith's daughter were taken from their home.

Faith got a phone call from Angel's 16-year-old son.

"He called Faith and she told me what was happening," says Angel. "We left work immediately and began looking."

Then Angel says she called Marvin.

"I told him, 'Our kids are missing. I need you to come home,'" says Angel. "He says, 'Well baby I am about an hour and a half away. I will be home as soon as I can.'"

What Marvin didn't say, she says, what that he took her kids.

"Even after I found out it was him, I was scared," says Faith.

A scary ordeal that fortunately ended in a safe return.

"I was holding my granddaughter and I was trying to look at each and every one of them and try and see any marks try and see any scratches and you know, I wanted to touch them all at once, every one of them," says Angel.

Now, Angel is dealing with the questions from her children.

"All of my kids want to know if it's okay that they love him," says Angel. "My four year old wants to know if he is eating."

However, forgiveness is not a question for her and her family.

"As much as people are praying for my kids, Marvin needs that too," says Angel.

They say they are praying for him and growing stronger every day.
