American Who Prevented French Terror Attack Repeatedly Stabbed in California

CBS News is reporting that Spencer Stone, one of two American servicemen who prevented a terror attack on a French train in August, was repeatedly stabbed near Sacramento last night.

Along with two other Americans, Stone, a 23-year old Airman in the Air Force, tackled gunman Ayoub El-Khazzani during a Paris-To-Amsterdam train on August 21.

NBC News reports that Stone is currently in surgery and in stable condition (Initial reports indicated that he was in critical condition).

UPDATE 11:25 am: The Air Force has confirmed the stabbing. ”He is alive and in stable condition at this time,” a spokesman said in a statement, according to NBC News. ”We do not have any information as to the events preceding the incident.”

According to ABC 10, police were called to midtown Sacramento at 12:45 am in response to fight during which one man was stabbed several times in his chest. Police told the station they don’t believe the attack was a hate crime, though there are no reports of an arrest yet.
