CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - An elderly man who was assaulted close to the Hampton Roads Executive Airport in September has passed away.
Kelly O'Sullivan with the Chesapeake Police Department says Charles Silva, 77, was in a remote part of the airport around 5 p.m. on Sept. 27.
Police say Silva had warned a group of people about trespassing and was then assaulted. Kyle Langreder, 23, has been charged with malicious wounding by mob and additional charges are possible.
Silva, an avid hunter, and his local hunting club had a partnership with the airport to keep the deer population in check. According to friends, Silva was at the airport that day clearing land so that the hunters had space to put up their stands.
