(ABC NEWS)– 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 was reportedly attacked overnight in Sacramento, Calif.
The defense official told ABC News that Stone is believed to have been attacked between midnight and 1 a.m. PT.
ABC News affiliate KXTV reported that the victim in the stabbing, identified by the defense official as Stone, suffered multiple stab wounds to his torso.
Police told KXTV Stone was expected to recover.
Stone, 23, is a member of the U.S. Air Force and was traveling on board a train headed to Paris with two friends when the train came under attack by a gunman.
Stone ran at the gunman and later said in an interview released by the Pentagon that he remembered thinking “I’m going to get shot, I’m dead.”
