    Bail has been set at $3 million for a Carpentersville man accused of beating a woman with a hammer, sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl and stabbing a dog.

    Daniel J. Happ faces charges for allegedly beating a 23-year-old woman in the head repeatedly with a hammer, sexually assaulting her daughter and stabbing the woman’s dog, according to a report in the Daily Herald.

    Charging documents said Happ threatened to beat the girl with the hammer as he sexually assaulted her, according to the report.

    Police told the paper they believe Happ did not force his way into the home and may have been invited, but the investigation is ongoing and no other information was available.

    The woman was taken to Sherman Hospital but her condition is unknown at this time. The young girl is said to be in a safe place at this time, according to the report.

    On March 21, Happ will appear in the Kane County Judicial Center to face charges of attempted murder, armed violence, two counts of aggravated battery, one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated cruelty to animals.
