Police are asking for help in identifying this man, who was in critical condition when the picture was taken this past weekend.

Metro Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man found beaten near UNLV. Authorities said Monday night the man had died as a result of his injuries.

Officers responded at about 1:50 a.m. Friday to the report of a man down in the area of 1055 East Tropicana. The man was found badly beaten and suffering from a brain injury, authorities said.

That location is between Maryland Parkway and Swenson Street adjacent to the UNLV campus. Police released the man's photo Sunday with hopes that someone can identify him.

The man had no identification and wasn't able to communicate with officers. He was taken to a hospital unconscious and in critical condition. He died Monday, although authorities still haven't been able to identify the man.

The victim was described as white, between 50 and 60 years old, about 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing about 155 pounds. He was wearing a white, button-up shirt, white pants, a black belt and gray athletic shoes.

Anyone who recognizes the man or has information about the incident is asked to call Metro detectives at 828-3111 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
