Spencer Stone tackled the Islamist on the train and held him down then saved a shooting victim’s life who was shot in the neck.
Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, who helped take down a gunman on a train in Belgium, was stabbed four times in the chest in Sacramento early Thursday morning, Air Force Times has learned.
“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 an email in Air Force Times. “The incident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement. He is currently in stable condition.”
A Sacramento TV station reported on the stabbing but did not include the victim’s name. The stabbing happened about 12:45 a.m. on Thursday on a Sacramento street corner
The victim suffered “multiple stab wounds to the torso,” KCRA‑TV reported. Police initially did not think the stabbing victim would survive and began treating the incident as a homicide investigation, but it now appears that the victim will pull through.

A fight in the street allegedly led to Stone being stabbed multiple times in the torso, prompting investigators to block off two blocks in the area, Sacramento police said.
Homicide detectives were called out because officers did not think Stone would survive, but he was taken to the hospital and is expected to live, according to police.
A man and a woman were questioned by police, but there is no word that they were detained or taken into custody.
The area reopened about 6 a.m., but the investigation is ongoing.
No suspect description has been released.
Stone was stabbed four times in the upper torso.
Police did not think he would survive.
UPDATE: Stone was stabbed for defending a friend!
