Police defend man who beat son’s ‘molester’

Police in Florida have defended a father who beat an 18-year-old unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his 11-year-old son.

The father called 911 after he walked in on the alleged abuse, police said.

When police 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 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. According to the arrest affidavit, he admitted the abuse.
