The New York Police Department has identified a person of interest in an odd attack that took place at a Bronx deli.

Police say the 21-year-old employee was behind the counter at the stadium gourmet deli at the time.

The video shows one man, wearing a black t-shirt, grab avocados from a stand and start pelting them at the worker behind the counter. Another employee tries to dodge the flying fruit.

"This action, what he do, it's not normal", an employee told a local NBC affiliate.
