Authorities say a Camden County man who was assaulted earlier this month has died and cops are still searching for the assailant.

Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer says on the morning of Tuesday, July 6th, Camden County Metro Police were dispatched to the area of 7th and Pine Streets in Camden for the report of an aggravated assault. There, officers found 53-year-old Edward Dupont of Camden unconscious. Mayer says witnesses reported Dupont was, "struck in the head by an unknown male, causing Dupont to fall off his bicycle and strike his head on the pavement."

Dupont was taken to Cooper Hospital for treatment; he died from his injuries this past Sunday.

Officials say, "after performing an autopsy on Dupont, the medical examiner determined the cause of death to be complications of a head injury and the manner of death to be homicide."
