Tyler Perry replaces woman’s stolen van
DECATUR, GA. (AP) - Filmmaker Tyler Perry is donating a new van to a Georgia woman with cerebral palsy after her specially equipped one was stolen outside Atlanta.
Perry tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/T01DqC ) Tuesday he heard news reports about Alicia Day's van being stolen this week in Decatur.
Police say Day's 2000 Chrysler Town and Country van was taken from her driveway sometime Sunday night.
Day uses a wheelchair and tells the station that she prides herself on being independent, working part-time as a greeter at Home Depot. Her mother relied on the van to take Day to work and to doctor appointments.
Day says her "mouth just dropped" when she heard Perry's voice on the phone.
Perry's films include "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" and he has a studio complex in Atlanta.
