The boy’s father told officers that he came home to find a neighbor, 18-year-old Raymond Frolander, in the act of molesting his son when he attacked him, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department arrest report.

“I just walked in on a grown man molesting …,” the 35-year-old father told a 911 dispatcher, according to the The Daytona Beach News Journal. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer. Send an ambulance. He is going to need one,” the father told the dispatcher.

When officers arrived, they found Frolander “laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth,” according to the police report.

The boy told officers that before the attack he had been playing video games with some friends. When his friends left, he was left alone with Frolander who molested him.

According to the boy, the sexual abuse had been going on since he was 8 years old, according to the report.

“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. “You have an 18-year-old who has clearly picked his target, groomed his target and had sex with the victim multiple times.
