Spencer Stone, one of the three Americans who helped thwart a terror attack on a French train in August, was repeatedly stabbed in Sacramento, California, on Wednesday night.
The Sacramento Police Department tells ET that they received a call from a passerby that a subject had been stabbed, and he was located on scene and transported to an area hospital by fire personnel. Although police declined to name the victim, it is believed that Stone was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to him being stabbed multiple times in his upper body.
Police say the victim is currently being treated for what appears to be non life-threatening injuries, and no arrests have been made at this time. They also tweeted on Thursday that the assault incident is not related to a terrorist act. "Assault occurred near a bar, alcohol is believed to be a factor," the tweet reads.
The Air Force Times reports that Stone, 23, was stabbed four times in the chest. "A1C Spencer Stone has been transported to a local hospital, and is currently being treated for injury," Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Karns said in a statement. "He is currently in stable condition."
Stone, a U.S. Air Force Airman, made headlines when together with Skarlatos and their friend, Anthony Sadler, overpowered a gunman on a European train who started to open fire. Stone was stabbed and slashed with a box cutter during the train scuffle in August.
