(Farmington-AP) -- The Clearfield man accused of beating a woman with a hammer and raping her daughter is facing more charges in another case.

The Davis County Attorney's Office filed charges of first-degree felony aggravated sexual abuse of a child against Michael Shane Dyer yesterday.

The 32-year-old man is accused of luring a 10-year-old acquaintance to his home after school on February 6 by promising her a puppy. The girl told police he then performed a sexual act on her.

Dyer pleaded innocent this week to a February 19 attack where police say he hit a 43-year-old woman multiple times in the head with a hammer before raping the woman's 14-year-old daughter.

He was found hiding in a shed by police dogs and arrested about 45-minutes after the attack.
