comes from the words, "almost", and "stabbed", "stabbed" is turned into "stabben" by the speaker who is too scared to speak correctly. It is said by somebody who was mugged, attacked, etc. by an assailant using a sharp object as a main weapon, but escaped and returned to his crew, then still shaken, tries to tell them what just happened.
Oh man,I I was almostaben!
