Saratoga Springs Police said Wednesday that 31-year-old Aaron Huggins has died after being assaulted  early Friday morning.

Police have charged 25-year-old Jeffrey Mann with one count of second degree assault. Mann allegedly  attacked Huggins after the two bumped into each other at the Paddock Lounge nightclub on Caroline Street. Huggins was knocked unconscious and sustained injuries to the head and face.

Mann was arraigned last Friday and remains in Saratoga County Jail in lieu of bail.

A criminal investigation is still underway. An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
