John Glenn, the 'last true national hero,' dead at 95

Accused child molestor's mugshot shows results of bloody encounter with victim's father


Police say a Daytona Beach father beat an 18-year-old man unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his son.

Authorities say the father called 911 early Friday after he walked in on the alleged abuse. 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.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the father — who was not identified by police — told investigators he walked in as Frolander was abusing the boy. Police did not release the boy's age, but Frolander is charged with sexual battery on a child under 12.

“I just walked in on a grown man molesting ...,” the upset father told a dispatcher, as reported by the News-Journal. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer.”

The father was not charged in Frolander’s beating, police spokesman Jimmie Flynt told the News-Journal.

“Dad was acting like a dad. I don’t see anything we should charge the dad with,” Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood told the News-Journal

Frolander is being held without bail. It was not known whether he's hired a lawyer.

The arrest affidavit says Frolander admitted the abuse.
