DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a Daytona Beach father beat an 18-year-old man unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his 11-year-old son.

Authorities say the father called 911 early Friday after he walked in on the alleged abuse.

When asked by the 911 dispatcher if any weapons were involved, the father said “my foot and my fist.” The father has not been charged with any crime.

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.

Frolander is charged with sexual battery on a child under 12.
