A Florida police chief said he has no problem with the father who brutally beat a man that was allegedly molesting his 11-year-old son.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood was asked by CNN affiliate CFN 13 if he had any issue with how the father reacted.
"Not as a police chief and not as a father,” Chitwood responded.
At this time, no charges have been filed against the father for beating the alleged molester, Raymond Frolander, 18, to the point that he was “nice and knocked out” for the police to then deal with, reports CNN.
The incident occurred on Friday, July 18 at the home of the unidentified father.
The 11-year-old son was left at the home alone with Frolander—a close family friend.
When the father returned home, he allegedly caught the man molesting his son. His reaction was one of violence, and he beat him to the point that he was “in a puddle of blood” when the father called 911 to report the incident, reports The Baltimore Sun.
"We observed the defendant laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth," police wrote in the charging affidavit.
The 11-year-old victim stated in the affidavit that Frolander performed oral sex on him and told the boy to fondle him. The boy claims the abuse began a few years ago.
Frolander faces a felony sexual battery charge on a victim under 12-years-old. He has reportedly told police he is guilty.
Police Chief Chitwood has not responded to requests for comment on his statement.
