Bodega employee charged with murder after stabbing attacker in self-defense

A hard-working Manhattan bodega employee who was forced to grab a knife to ward off a violent ex-con is now behind bars in the notorious Rikers Island prison on murder charges and no $250,000 bail -dollars can deposit.

The sky-high bail for Jose Alba - who has no criminal history - was only half of what the office of controversial Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg asked for, even though surveillance video showed the employee at the bodega being assaulted by his alleged victim .

Alba, 51, has been charged with the fatal stabbing of Austin Simon, 35, who rushed behind the counter at Hamilton Heights Grocery on Broadway and West 139th Street Friday night to attack the store employee.

The harrowing incident followed an argument Alba had with Simon's girlfriend, whose EBT debit card was refused when she tried to use it to buy chips for her 10-year-old daughter at the store, police and law enforcement sources said.

The 32-year-old woman claimed Alba snatched the snack from her daughter's hand - so she threw objects on the counter and ran home to get Simon, who burst into the bodega and attacked Alba about 10 minutes later.

During the fight, according to Alba's defense attorney, Simon's friend allegedly stabbed the worker in the shoulder with a knife she had in her purse - but she is not charged.

However, Bragg's office charged Alba, a father of three who moved to the United States 30 years ago from the Dominican Republic in search of a better life, with second-degree murder. He became a US citizen 14 years ago.
