Nearly a month after he was viciously beaten at a Chapel Street bus stop, 66-year-old Francisco Ray died in the hospital Thursday.

The beating occurred on May 30. Ray had been hospitalized in critical condition since then.

According to police, two men attacked Ray during an argument at the corner of Chapel and Orange streets and fled on one bike. Police found them on Grand Avenue near John Murphy Drive.

The two men were initially charged with assault and conspiring to assault, and held on $500,000 bonds. They may face additional charges based on the findings of an autopsy of Ray’s body.

In other police news, according to police spokesman Officer Dave Hartman:

“Some” Weed: A 9:20 p.m. on Monday, police pulled over a Toyota Avalon on Peck Alley in Fair Haven. The 34-year-old driver wasn’t wearing a seat belt.

The Hamden driver was nervous, avoided eye contact, and couldn’t name the friend he claimed to be visiting in the neighborhood. Police also smelled marijuana.

The driver admitted he had “some weed.” Police found a small bag of it in his pocket. They found over 5 1/2 pounds in the car, an amount that carries a street value of over $17,000.

Police confiscated the driver’s cell phone and $3,360 and charged him with four drug crimes and failing to wear a seat belt.

32 Bags: At 8:45 p.m on Wednesday, cops learned that a teenager they were looking for in connection with gunfire five days earlier was riding a bike on Willis Street in Newhallville.

With a warrant in hand, cops staked out the area and arrested the 17-year-old when he pedaled by. The teen had a loaded Taurus .40-caliber pistol on him, along with 32 bags of crack, three cell phones, and some cash.

Police arrested the teen on previous and new charges, including weapons and drug crimes.

I have to imagine the additional charges are going to soon be homicide if his death was a direct result of the beating.
