Hope Mills man arrested, charged with felony child abuse

Posted: Updated:
HOPE MILLS, N.C. -

Cumberland County authorities have charged a Hope Mills man with physically abusing his 18-month-old son after doctors discovered numerous serious injuries to the child.

Nathaniel Pascarella, 26, is being held on $150,000 bond in the Cumberland County Detention Center on charges of felony child abuse and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

The child went under medical testing at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and it was determined that he suffered from a left side rib fracture and acute subdural hematoma, which is commonly associated with traumatic brain injury. 

The victim was then transferred to Duke University Hospital where doctors performed further examinations. Doctors there discovered multiple subdural hematomas of different ages, contusions to the head, a healing rib fracture, bruises on the left eyelid and under the right eye and extensive retinal hemorrhages. 

Doctors determined that the injuries were caused by non-accidental trauma.

Pascarella is scheduled to make his first court appearance this afternoon in the Cumberland County Detention Center courtroom.
