    Todd Traver and Christopher Lavigne are accused in an attack on a New Haven man who later died.

    A 66-year-old New Haven man who had a heart attack after being attacked at a city bus stop in May has died, police said.

    The victim, Francisco Ray, was knocked unconscious at a bus stop on Chapel Street near Orange Street around 8 p.m. Friday, May 30, and went into cardiac arrest, according to police.

    Authorities rushed to the scene. Two men had assaulted Ray and fled on a single bicycle, they said.

    Ray was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital and died on Thursday, police said.

    Police identified Todd Traver, 32, and Christopher Lavigne, 30, both of Waterbury, as suspects and charged the men with first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit first-degree assault. They are both being held on $500,000 bond.

    The medical examiner will perform an autopsy, and additional charges are possible.
