Spencer Stone, one of the three U.S. service members who stopped a terrorist attack on a train in France, is in a California hospital today after being stabbed.
According to the Sacramento Police Department, officers responded to a call about a stabbing and found Stone around 1:00 a.m. The report states he received multiple stab wounds to the upper body after “an altercation.”
The Sacramento Bee reported that Stone’s injury’s were initially thought to be life-threatening. However, his condition at the hospital was upgraded from serious to stable. No arrests have been made as of now. Police said alcohol was a factor, but did not elaborate.
Stone, alongside Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos, took down a gunman on a Paris-bound train in August, preventing what could have been a mass shooting.
UPDATE: There is video of the attack below. Per the News Review, the fight started after Stone attempted to protect a woman being attacked by six men.
