DAYTONA BEACH — A Daytona Beach father beat an 18-year-old man unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his 11-year-old son early Friday morning, police said.

The father called 911 around 1 a.m. after he walked in on the alleged abuse, police said. When officers arrived, they found Raymond Frolander motionless on the living room floor. He had several knots on his face and was bleeding from the mouth.

"He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you," the father told the 911 dispatcher. "I drug him out to the living room."

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the father — who was not identified by police — told investigators he walked in as Frolander was abusing the boy.

When asked by the 911 dispatcher if any weapons were involved, the father said "my foot and my fist."

The father has not been charged with any crime.

"Dad was acting like a dad. I don't see anything we should charge the dad with," Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike 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 is charged with sexual battery on a child under 12. He is being held without bail. It was not immediately known whether he'd hired a lawyer.

According to the arrest affidavit, Frolander admitted the abuse.

Was the perp abused as a child?

I often hear that child abusers were abused as children.

If so, where does it end?

If the perp is a pedophile, he can't help it. Just keep him away from children.

Kudos to the dad. Shame you

Kudos to the dad. Shame you didn't finish him off, but his face can be used as an example. note to scumbag. It probably wouldn't be a good idea to sue. I'm sure any attempts to get back at the dad will be taken care of.

Sounds like this Dad handled

Sounds like this Dad handled it exactly the way it should have, though I tend to agree with doubleD. Since the suspect survived he now has many more beatings to look forward to. Won't help the victim but seeing this beat up face might give other child abusers a taste of what the public thinks of them. Maybe there's some way to use this mugshot in an anti child abuse campaign.
