Returning from the shops, the victim's unsuspecting father came home to hear a weird noise from a bedroom. When he went to investigate, police said, he found the alleged molester performing a sexual act on his 11-year-old son.

When he rang 911, the father told police what happened when he found Frolander, a man with a close connection to the victim's family. "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."

The accused molester was left with cuts, bruises and a swollen face.

Describing his fist and foot as his only weapons, the father told the dispatcher, "He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you". When asked if the man was unconscious, the father replied, "Yes… I hit hard, sir".

Mike Chitwood, the Police Chief at Daytona Police, in defence of the father, said the "Dad was acting like a dad. I don't see anything we should charge the dad with".

The boy, whose alledged attacker is said to have carefully waited for his victim's friends to leave, before taking him into another room and removing his pants, told police he'd been getting abused for three years. The man is now being held without bail, charged with sexual battery on a child under 12.
