NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) -

Police in New London said they've made an arrest in a serious Thanksgiving morning assault after which the victim died.

Edgar Sanchez-Valencia, also known as "Panama," 44, was charged with assault.

However, police said the victim passed away on Monday, so his charges could be upgraded.

Police said the unidentified man was found to be suffering from serious facial and head injuries at the William's Park Apartments on Hempstead Street around 3:30 a.m.

They called it an isolated incident.

The victim was brought to Lawrence & Memorial hospital for treatment. However, the victim was brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital where the victim died.
