One of the three Americans who helped stop a terrorist attack on a train this August in France has been stabbed and is in stable condition, a defense department official confirmed to ABC News.
Spencer Stone, a member of the U.S. Air Force, was reportedly attacked at approximately 1 a.m. PT, according to an Air Force spokesperson. The attack took place in the area of 21st Street and K Street in Sacramento, Calif. The Sacramento Police later added on Twitter that the “assault occurred near a bar, alcohol is believed to be a factor.”

ABC News affiliate KXTV reported that Stone suffered multiple stab wounds to his torso.
“It is believed that the victim was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to the victim being stabbed multiple times in his upper body,” the public information officer for the Sacramento Police Department said in a statement to KXTV. “Detectives were called to the scene to assist with the investigation and the victim is currently being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.”
