(Reading) -- Police are investigating the death of a man found dead beneath a cliff after an assault was reported in Berks County.

Reading police say the dead man is 18-year-old Donovin Yenser, of Birdsboro.

His body was found off the side of a road and over the cliff on Mount Penn by police responding to the reported fight or assault about 1:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Yenser died at a hospital on Wednesday.

Police are interviewing people who knew Yenser to determine whether he fell or was pushed from the cliff and, if so, why.

Investigators haven't specified how far Yenser fell from the cliff, but said he was found with a head injury.
