Raymond Frolander, 18, was severely beaten by an 11-year-old boy's father who caught him sexually abusing his son last Friday (July 18).

While Frolander was charged in a Daytona Beach court in Florida later that day for "sexual battery of a child", the unidentified father who violently meted punishment on Frolander is not facing any charge.

CNN asked the Daytona Beach police chief Michael Chitwood whether he had any issue with the father's violent reaction.

He replied: "Not as a police chief and not as a father".

Both the father and child are unidentified in order to protect the identity of the child.

According to the police affidavit, the father had come home from work and found Frolander lying on a bed with his genitals exposed while his son had his shorts down to his knees.

The father then began to beat up Frolander.

He then called the police to come and arrest Frolander, who was reportedly lying in a puddle of blood. 

When police arrived on scene, they saw Frolander, "laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth."

Frolander was a close to the family and that the father had treated Frolander like a part of the family.

"The father acted as a father should act," said Chitwood.
