Sam allegedly refused to sell a 27-year-old man cigarettes because he could not provide identification, according to WAFB. That escalated into an argument that turned into a fight, police said.

Sam then pulled out a 5-inch knife and stabbed the victim multiple times, according to the report.

The victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.
