1) It appears from a new video that career criminal Austin Simon's "darling" girlfriend tried to stab Jose Alba during the struggle.
2) Alba was surely on the defensive; All Simon needed to do to end the struggle (and save his life) was to step back.https://t.co/frOTav0eIz pic.twitter.com/XYXvnbIrHa

The Daily Mail reported:
New surveillance footage has emerged of bodega worker Jose Alba, 61, trying to fend off the gangster he stabbed to death and his girlfriend as the pair attacked him in his store in a row over a $3 bag of chips.
Alba has been charged with second degree murder for the incident on July 1.
He used the store’s boxcutter to stab Austin Simon in the neck and chest after he charged into the store wearing a $350 Amiri t-shirt, demanding that Alba apologize to his girlfriend.
She had tried to buy a bag of chips but her EBT card was declined as she tried to pay for them. Alba refused to let her have the chips which sent her running in a rage to call her boyfriend for back-up.
The girlfriend has not been charged, despite video clearly showing her stabbing Alba in the arm.
This was all over a bag of chips.
They’ll lock up an elderly man for defending himself from someone assaulting him over a bag of chips, but they’ll happily release criminals.
Clear evidence of self defense, no criminal past, 250k bail. Backwards ass city, this shit is disgusting. Free Jose Alba https://t.co/LKWV3oNbdi
