Posted: Updated:

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 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 says she didn't know the man. A suspect has been identified, but no arrest has been reported.
