DAYTONA BEACH (CBS Tampa) – A Daytona Beach man who walked in on a man sexually assaulting his 11-year-old son says he had a right to beat the suspect unconscious in a pool of his own blood, reports the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
“I just walked in on a grown man molesting,” the man told a 911 dispatcher. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer.”
Asked by the dispatcher if any weapons were involved, the father said “my foot and my fist.”
“I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions sir,” the father said. “He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room.”
The dispatcher asked of the man was injured. The father answered, “send an ambulance. He is going to need one.”
Police say they found Raymond Frolander lying motionless on the living room floor. Frolander had several bruises on his face and was bleeding from the mouth, an arrest report states.
The 35-year-old unidentified father told police that he Frolander sexually battering the boy, says the report.
The father is so far not facing any criminal charges, said Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood “Dad was acting like a dad. I don’t see anything we should charge the dad with,” Chitwood said. “You have an 18-year-old who has clearly picked his target, groomed his target and had sex with the victim multiple times.”
Frolander was treated for his injuries at Halifax Health Medical Center. According to Frolander’s arrest affidavit, police say when they questioned him he admitted sexually battering the child and said, “I’m guilty.”
The child told investigators that he was playing video games with friends but after the friends left, Frolander asked the boy to sit in his lap and then took him to a back room, the report states.
Frolander then pulled the boy’s pants down and started sexually battering him, the boy told police, adding that Frolander had been abusing him since he was 8 years old, investigators said.
“When (the victim) sat on the 18-year-old’s lap, he knew what was next,” Chtiwood said. “The young man was in fear that if he didn’t comply, he would get hurt.”
In the 9-1-1 call the father said he stepped out of his home to get food and when he came back he knew something was not right because the house was too quiet. He walked into the room and saw Frolander and the child, he said to the dispatcher.
“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father told the dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do except I didn’t kill him.” He added, “You are damn lucky boy that I love my God.”
