A Deltona father ended up in jail Thursday after finding his daughter's teenage boyfriend naked in the girl's bedroom and hitting him with a pipe, sheriff's officials said.
Raul Colon, 45, didn't even know his daughter had a boyfriend -- or that the youngster had been sneaking into the home for more than a year. So when he heard noises coming from his daughter's room early Thursday and saw a naked stranger standing on the girl's bed, he swung a metal pipe he had taken from the garage, hitting the 15-year-old, according to a Volusia County sheriff's report.
Colon was charged with aggravated battery on a child but was released from jail later Thursday on $10,000 bail, a booking officer said. No one answered the phone at Colon's residence Thursday for comment.
According to the report, Colon heard the noise in his daughter's room when he got up at 4 a.m. to let his dog out, as he does every morning.
Colon told deputies he chased Lucas Contreres through the kitchen, living room and through the front door and out into the street and called 9-1-1.
Colon's daughter later told deputies she had been seeing Contreres for 18 months but did not tell her father about the relationship. Contreres had sneaked in through a bedroom window at 3 a.m. Thursday to have sex with her, the 15-year-old girl told deputies.
Contreres was found at Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City where he received staples to close cuts on his head. His injuries were not life-threatening, deputies said.
Contreres told deputies a similar account to Colon's. He said Colon came into the room and started swinging at him with the metal pipe. He jumped out of the bed and began running through the home to get away from Colon. Once outside, he jumped on his bike and went home. His sister later took him to the hospital, deputies said.
Although Contreres' father said he wasn't sure whether he wanted to press charges, deputies took Colon to jail anyway.
Why do these stories always have to be about dirty sex?
There should be more fathers like this.
“Although Contreres’ father said he wasn’t sure whether he wanted to press charges, deputies took Colon to jail anyway.”
I wonder if this boy’s father isn’t considering telling his son that he brought this on himself. That would be refreshing.
If I went in my daughters bedroom at 4 in the morning after hearing strange noises, and saw a naked male on her bed whom I had never met before my first thought would be that she was in danger and I would do whatever it took to protect her. Sort of a shoot first ask questions later situation.
Frankly I hope the girls father gets off.
That's kind of strange.
Put me on the jury and he walks with a “sorry for the inconvenience sir”.
It’s the punk screwing this guy’s daughter that should have been arrested.
Would you run if you were having “clean sex”?
I would not arrest the 15 year old, he was an invited doofus in the home.
I’d ground the girl if I were her parents and secure her windows from further entry.
The parents of the boy need to somehow teach the kid some common sense.
The father who chased the naked boy through his home in the middle of the night should be held blameless, just what the hell was he supposed to do under the odd circumstances?
The boy was lucky that the daughter’s father wasn’t a veterinarian.
I think anyone with an “ounce” of sanity is with you..
My guess is that his daughter’s relationship with this naked boy is over.
Is this story on the level? Written by Patricio Balogna?
“The father who chased the naked boy through his home in the middle of the night should be held blameless, just what the hell was he supposed to do under the odd circumstances?”
Um, hold his daughter accountable for her actions and leave the disciplining of someone else’s kids up to them. The girl obviously invited him into the house.
Oh yeah, and the dad needs to be careful about hitting people with blunt objects.
sounds like statutory rape to me.
Since the boy was also 15 I suppose you would like them both charged??
Please, spare me.
Go to Saudi Arabia - you'll find plenty.
In Saudi Arabia the girl would have been killed for disgracing the family.
If the kid lived — he’s lucky..
Next — the daughter needs some “attention”...
If this was my daughter and you were the boys father, you would be asking me to spare you. I doubt it would do much good though.
Actually, the boy was 15, as well; it’s not statutory, at least not by any statute I’ve ever seen. My guess is that even if he was 18 that this would still be considered legal, as most states allow a 3-year bumper.
I guess on a second reading that the guy is standing naked on the bed, which could be seen as a threatending posture. But if the daughter was awake and trying to defend her boyfriend, the guy has no excuse to go swinging a lead pipe around.
If the 15 year old is taking the pipe to the guys daughter, can’t Dad take the pipe to the 15 year old?
Something is not right about it.
The boy has committed a felony. It is called statutory rape.
There is no way the father can be convicted when he thought he was chasing a rapist, which in fact he was but a different level than he thought.
The sheriff should be the one in jail, with the boy in the adjacent cell.
“Yes, your Honor, I heard noises and found the deceased in my daughter’s bedroom sexually assaulting her. I shot him twice in the chest, and he fell onto the floor mortally wounded, but still moving, so — out of Christian compassion — I put a third shot between his eyes to put him out of his misery.”
If I was defendant’s counsel, I’d be asking for a jury trial.
I grew up on a small farm. (cows, goats, pigs, chickens, etc.)
Trust me, you don’t have to be a veterinarian.
A 15 year old doesn't have the right to invite anyone without her parents consent. What the father did was the minimum.
15 year old boy and 15 year old girl. I think most fathers with any sense would know what was going on. But I can understand his rage at both of them. I certainly would not shoot and kill a boy for having sex with my daughter. Upset - yes; kill - no.
similar situation but involved our wonderful cattle dog. very satisfying. Afterwords, the dog wouldn’t come out from under the table for a full day. But when he needed to, he did what he had to do.
I would have done the same if I saw a naked stranger in my daughter's bedroom!
Hope he got a swing at his promiscuous daughter...
Nope. In Saudi they kill the girl, not the guy.
In the dark a 15 year old "boy" can appear to be, and can indeed be a dangerous threat.
I stand by my statement.
Bull. A 15 year old boy with the light on is a naked teenager and its obvious whats going on to anyone with a brain. My first anger would be directed at my daughter who let this guy into her room.
My thought exactly...
“yeah...I just found some naked guy in my house and I shot him dead”
That’s amazing.. “obviously invited” Really 4am in the morning and not knowing she has a boyfriend?
I’m sure you would of just walked in and had a nice chat with the naked fellow.
If I had caught that boy he would dissapear from the face of the earth.
Its very common for states to charge an underage boy for sex with his underage girlfriend (who doesn’t herself face charges). A case challenging that double stnadard went all the way to the US Supreme Court, where they told the little player he was going to prison...
“Because virtually all of the significant harmful and identifiable consequences of teenage pregnancy fall on the female, a legislature acts well within its authority when it elects to punish only the participant who, by nature, suffers few of the consequences of his conduct.”
Michael M. v. Superior Court of Sonoma County 450 U.S. 464 (1981)
I just checked Florida’s criminal code. It was a felony for the boy to even be naked in front of a 15 year old girl. Its astonishing the cop arrested the victim’s father and not the felon. Not only will the charges be dropped, I wouldn’t be surprised if the cop gets fired over this.
800.04 Lewd or lascivious offenses committed upon or in the presence of persons less than 16 years of age.—
(7) LEWD OR LASCIVIOUS EXHIBITION.—
(a) A person who:
2. Intentionally exposes the genitals in a lewd or lascivious manner;
in the presence of a victim who is less than 16 years of age, commits lewd or lascivious exhibition.
(c) An offender less than 18 years of age who commits a lewd or lascivious exhibition commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
Another onion story? The father “Colon” whacked the naked boy with his “pipe” ? come on
“Frankly I hope the girls father gets off.”
Well, that would only be fair, since the kid obviously did. And then kept coming back for more.
