BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say a Wisconsin man is charged in connection with the stabbings of four people and a dog during a break-in at a suburban Chicago home.

Buffalo Grove police said Friday that 29-year-old Jacob William Beeman of Arkdale, Wisconsin, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, home invasion and aggravated animal cruelty. He was being held on a $2 million cash bond Friday evening.

The department said Beeman also is wanted in Wisconsin for charges related to resisting a peace officer. Police said more charges are likely.

Police said Beeman believed there were large sums of cash and drugs in the home.

Police said the homeowner injured in the attack early Wednesday remains hospitalized. The three other victims were treated and released and the dog was in good condition after surgery.
