Posted: Updated:

Police said the 24-year-old victim who fell four stories after an assault in Naugatuck earlier this month has died.

Officers were called to a home on Pond Street where they found Saloman Martinez, 24, of Stratford lying on the sidewalk.

Investigators determined that Martinez had fallen out of a window on the fourth floor of the home. He was taken to Waterbury Hospital with serious head and body injuries.

Officials said Martinez had been kept alive with breathing equipment, and was in critical condition.  Police confirmed he died Saturday morning.

Both men were charged with first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace, first-degree conspiracy to assault, first-degree conspiracy to reckless endangerment, second-degree conspiracy to threatening and second-degree conspiracy to breach of peace.

There is no word on if the men involved will face additional charges.
