A 53-year-old man died Friday morning, two weeks after he was assaulted at his home in West Rogers Park on the Northwest Side.

Herbert Rohloff was beaten about 2 p.m. on Oct. 31 at his home in the 6200 block of North Artesian, according to Chicago Police.

He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, initially in serious condition, police said.
