CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Tennessee say a 71-year-old car wash attendant has died less than two weeks after he was attacked.

Clarksville police spokesman Jim Knoll says in a news release the victim died Saturday night.

The statement says the man had been hospitalized since the May 30 assault in Clarksville. His name wasn’t released pending notification of family.

Knoll says the man had fallen to the ground after being involved in a struggle with three juveniles who had entered the car wash. The man’s vehicle was stolen and the juveniles later were arrested on robbery and vehicle theft charges.

Knoll says the investigating is continuing and additional charges are being considered.
