A 19-year-old victim of last week's home invasion and stabbing in Buffalo Grove urged police to hurry and "come with their guns" while describing the attack during a recording of a nearly 4-minute 911 call obtained Wednesday by the Daily Herald.

"I am bleeding out," the teen son of the homeowner says on a redacted recording of the call. "Me and my dad, we just got ... stabbed."


The dispatcher from Northwest Central Dispatch System remains calm as he asks questions about the nature of the injuries, the number of attackers and other information for responding police officers and paramedics.

The son, at times voicing frustration and impatience with the questioning, says he'd been stabbed in the arm and head while his 47-year-old father suffered shoulder and chest wounds.

"There's blood everywhere!" he tells the dispatcher.

A 16-year-old girl in the home also was stabbed on the hand and on the top of her head, and the family's German shepherd, Piston, suffered stab wounds while attacking the intruder, authorities said.

The son says that windows in his home were busted out and two white men who had broken in fled the scene before he called 911.

Before the calls ends, the 19-year-old victim is speaking to two Buffalo Grove police officers who had arrived on the scene.

Wheeling police later apprehended 29-year-old Jacob William Beeman of Arkdale, Wisconsin, at a gas station following a report of a suspicious subject there. Beeman, who authorities said was found with a knife in his boot, was taken into custody by Buffalo Grove police.

Prosecutors charged Beeman with attempted first-degree murder, home invasion and aggravated animal cruelty. He is in custody at the Cook County jail on $2 million bail.

Authorities said Beeman entered the victims' house alone and attacked them, believing there were drugs and cash in the residence. The search for a second suspect, who reportedly waited outside throughout the attack, continues.

Northwest Central Dispatch released the recording of the 911 call Wednesday, with personal information redacted from it.
