A diaper thief punched an employee at a St. Albans deli last month as he was trying to get away, police said.

The suspect entered 205 Deli Grocery, located on Hollis Avenue near 205th Place, on Sept. 22 at about 9:50 a.m. and grabbed the diapers, authorities said.

A 59-year-old employee at the deli tried to stop the suspect, who then punched him in the head, police said. The suspect then fled.
