MAN BEAT UP SEX ABUSE SUSPECT-PKG


Before suspect Raymond Frolander was brought to the Volusia County jail, he was taken to the hospital for treatment, badly beaten, according to police, by the victims father.

The suspect appeared in court, his eyes almost swollen shut, his face a road map of rage but police say the man who did it, isn't facing charges.chief Mike Chitwood says the father of the rape victim did what he would do.

dad reacted like a dad he's acting like a father, protecting his son and he's furious over what has occurred

Caller: I just walked in and found a grown man molesting XXXX. and I got him in a bloody puddle for you right now officer.

Police say suspect Frolander asked the 11 year old boy first to sit on his lap. Then took him to a bedroom, pulled HIS pants down and the childs, sexually battering him.that's the scenario the victims father walked in on. Reacting. Then calling 9-1-1.

you said the person who assaulted. He's not, You beat him up? Oh yea send him an ambulance. He's going to need one.

According to the victim, Frolander had been abusing him more than 3 years during alone time. A trusted family friend playing video games with the boy. But threatening.

the young man was in fear that if didn't comply he'd get hurt.

Frolander allegedly admitted the on-going sex abuse. Saying "i'm guilty" claiming he'd been abused as a child. The victims father clearly has no time for remorse.

I knew what was going on and I did what I had a right to except I didn't kill him. You are damn lucky boy that I love my God. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARM TEMPS TO DOMINATE THE WEEKEND

Warm temperatures and reduced coverage of rain on Saturday highlight the upcoming weekend forecast across Southwest Florida.

On Saturday, a wedge of somewhat drier air will continue to be over the Florida peninsula, cutting back on the coverage of rain across the state. Though an isolated shower or thunderstorm will be remain possible, it appears most backyards in the region will trend to stay on the dry side through Saturday afternoon.

Though the coverage of rain will be below what's seasonal for July in Southwest Florida tomorrow, temperatures will be warmer than what's typical for this time of year. The average high temperature at Fort Myers is 92 degrees for this time of year. On Saturday though, temps at their warmest are expected to be closer to the mid 90s, with expected highs approaching 94 degrees at Fort Myers.

Inland areas of the state could see afternoon temps approach the mid to upper 90s just after lunchtime on Saturday.

On Sunday, we will have a more favorable weather setup to allow conditions yielding late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and storms. Highs should continue to top out just warmer than average, with temps near 93 degrees.

For the upcoming work week, showers and thunderstorms look likely in the afternoon for Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures should max out in the low to mid 90s in the afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Tropical weather conditions are generally quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. There are no tropical features in play at this time, and no organization of any tropical activity is expected through the course of the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

01:46:52 From my stand point I understand people have different views. Florida is a traditional marriage state. People have the opportunity to go to court and make their case.
