Popular Federal Hill sweet shop Diablo Doughnuts has been closed and boarded up since mid-March, when a thief threw a brick through the plate-glass window fronting the sidewalk.

Owner Michael Roslan said he plans to reopen his habit-forming eatery once the coronavirus pandemic has ended.

A spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department confirmed that a police report was filed after the break-in at 1035 Light St. early in the morning March 16.

Roslan said the thief took only objects that could easily and quickly be reached: a selection of mugs, a skeleton that had been part of the window display.

No arrests have been made, the police spokesman said.

With the rates of infection in Baltimore rising daily, Roslan and his fiancee, Emily Thompson, decided to shutter the shop until the pandemic had passed.

”We didn’t want to ask our employees to risk their lives just to sell doughnuts,” Roslan said.

”But we definitely want to reopen. We worked so hard to make this shop happen. The important thing now is just for everybody to stay healthy and safe.”
