The father, who has not been named, arrived home to find that his son’s 18-year-old babysitter, Raymond Frolander, was in bed with his child. He then beat Frolander severely and dragged him out to the living room before dialing 911.
“I just walked in on a grown man molesting [my son],” the father states in recorded 911 audio footage. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you, officer.”
“Did you use any weapons?” the dispatcher asked.
“My foot and my fist,” the father replied. “I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions, sir. He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room. He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said. I did whatever I got a right to do, except I didn’t kill him. Send an ambulance. He is going to need one.”
The teen was treated and released from the hospital before being transferred to the Volusia County Jail, where he was also questioned by police.
Frolander, who appeared in court on Friday with a bruised and swollen face, allegedly admitted that he had engaged in sexual activity with the boy. The child told the police that the abuse had been ongoing for three years, but he was too afraid to say anything.
Police state that Frolander first had the boy sit on his lap, then took him to a bedroom where he began to molest him—until the child’s father walked in.
The father will not be charged for beating his son’s abuser.
“Dad was acting like a dad. I don’t see anything we should charge the dad with,” Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood told reporters. “You have an 18-year-old who has clearly picked his target, groomed his target and had sex with the victim multiple times. When the victim sat on the 18-year-old’s lap, he knew what was next. The young man was in fear that if he didn’t comply, he would get hurt.”
Walter Lee Hampton III, a self-professed homosexual, posted in a YouTube video earlier this year that he would not allow youth to be alone with homosexuals because of the prevalence of men pursuing young males.
“I’ve been active in the gay community since I was 17 years of age, and when I first came out, I could not understand why so many older individuals were interested in me,” he said. “These older guys literally chased me down [even though] I was a little kid.”
“Over the years, I have watched many of my friends chase after teenage kids under the age of 18,” he continued. “So, I thought in my mind, if I ever had kids—if I ever had teenage boys, I would keep them away from the vast majority of gay guys, because I know how this works.”
“I have seen this so often,” Hampton lamented. “This is not something that’s abnormal. I’ve seen this a thousand times.”
