A man has died days after police found him banging on doors.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- A man has died days after police found him banging on doors. 

Police received reports of a man banging on the doors of several homes in the 100 block of Kentucky Avenue around 9 p.m. Sunday. 

Crystal Porter was feeding her kids when she said the strange man started screaming and tried to get into her house. 

"He was just banging on the door like, 'Let me in someone's chasing me, somebody's chasing me!" said Porter.

Neighbor Maya Anderson said the man was bleeding and running door to door down the street.

"[He] started head-butting, kicking down windows and he kicked down our neighbors window over there," said Anderson. "He ran through backyards and stuff, head butting fences."

When police arrived they found the man suffering from a possible medical emergency, including a head injury. 

Officers were forced to restrain the man in order to take him to get treatment and a minor struggle ensued. 

The man was taken to a local area hospital where he passed away Wednesday afternoon. 

The cause of death is under investigation.
