Police: Daytona Beach father beats accused child abuser


Published:

DAYTONA BEACH — 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.

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

The arrest affidavit says Frolander admitted the abuse.
