Prosecutors say an 18-year-old man has been arrested Sunday in connection to the stabbing death of an Audubon deli owner.

Police say 52-year-old Jerome Pastore, who owned the Shamrock Delicatessen on South Davis Avenue, was found with stab wounds to the neck Friday evening.

Witnesses told News 12 Pastore was chasing down a shoplifter who stole a tip jar. Investigators say Dyheam Williams stabbed Pastore multiple times outside the deli.

Pastore was pronounced dead at Cooper University Hospital a short time later.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says Williams faces a list of charges, including murder.

Williams was arrested at his Lindenwold home and is being held at the Camden County Jail pending his pretrial detention hearing.

Police published a photo of a man on a bicycle Saturday, asking for the public's help in locating the man. Officials have not confirmed if Williams is the man in the photo.
