DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 32-year-old Des Moines man has died after being punched once in the face.

The Des Moines Register (https://dmreg.co/2a0buSe ) reports that Ryan Thompson was talking to his fiancee outside their home Monday afternoon when a man who was driving by stopped, got out and then punched Thompson in a side of his face after saying Thompson owed him money. The man drove away.

Police say Thompson died Tuesday at a hospital. Complete autopsy results aren’t expected to be available for several weeks.

Police say Thompson’s fiancee say she didn’t know the man. A suspect has been identified, but no arrest has been reported.
