Surveillance video captures the moment a Manhattan bodega worker allegedly stabbed a customer to death after the enraged man came around the counter and attacked him over a bag of chips.


The customer appears to yell at the store clerk, before shoving him into a shelf, the clip shows.

After several moments, the worker reaches to the right, toward shelves displaying candy.

The deadly beef reportedly started around 11 p.m. Friday when a woman entered the store with a child at Broadway and 139th Street to buy a back of chips, according to police.

But police said the unidentified woman didn’t have enough cash for the snack and instead stormed out of the store — and summoned Simon.

That’s when Simon charged into the store, went behind the counter and confronted the store clerk, identified as Jose Alba, 51, leading to the deadly stabbing.

Police responding to reports of an assault at the bodega arrested Alba and charged him with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
