http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/03/...l-stabbed-dog/A Carpentersville man is being held on $3 million bond on multiple heinous crimes – including beating a woman with a hammer, raping an 8-year-old girl, and stabbing a dog.
As WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports, the story of the crimes allegedly committed by Daniel Happ, 27, is so horrific that it reads like fiction. But police say it is very real.
Responding to a disturbance call, police were called to the 120 block of Brookdale Drive in Carpentersville around 12:50 a.m. Wednesday. They found Happ walking around inside the home, where a 23-year-old woman lived.
Inside, police say, Happ had hit the woman repeatedly in the head with a hammer, sexually assaulted the woman’s 8-year-old daughter, and stabbed their dog. While sexually assaulting the girl, police said, he threatened to use the hammer on her too.
Police found the woman and the girl inside. The woman was unconscious.
The family dog was found with stab wounds, but survived. The dog was being treated by an area veterinarian, Bosshart said.
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/2...ews/703089660/It doesn’t appear Happ forced his way into the home, police said.
“It’s not a home invasion or anything like that,” Bosshart said. “I believe he had been invited in.”
Police wouldn’t disclose any other information about the girl other than to say she is now in a safe place. The dog was being treated by a local veterinarian and its condition also was unknown.
