(DAYTONA BEACH NEWS JOURNAL) — A Daytona Beach father who walked in on a man sexually battering his 11-year-old son Friday said he did what he had a right to do when he beat the suspect unconscious, leaving him in a puddle of blood, according to a 9-1-1 call.
“I just walked in on a grown man molesting ...,” the upset father told a dispatcher. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer.”
The father was acting like a dad, said Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood.
Police responding to the Daytona Beach home at 1:07 a.m. Friday after the father called them found Raymond Frolander, 18, of Holly Hill lying motionless on the living room floor. Frolander had several knots on his face and was bleeding from the mouth, an arrest report states.
The 35-year-old unidentified father told police that he walked in on Frolander and interrupted him as Frolander sexually battered the boy, the report states.
Asked by the dispatcher if any weapons were involved, the father said “my foot and my fist.”
