Hero from French train attack stabbed leaving gay club
Spencer Stone was stabbed multiple times in upper body as he left the club.
One of the heroes who helped thwart a gunman’s attack on a French train in August was stabbed multiple times yesterday after leaving a gay club.
US Air Force Airman 1st Class Stone is in serious condition – but is expected to survive his injuries.
Stone was bar hopping with three women and another man and had just left Badlands Dance Club when a confrontation occurred between his group and another group.
Fortunately, nobody one else suffered any injuries.
“We firmly believe that this is not a terrorism related event and that it is in no way related to the incident that occurred in France.
“The assault does not appear to be a random act and is believed to be a nightlife related incident,” the Sacramento Police Department states.

The attackers fled from the scene and are being hunted by police.
Security camera recordings from a nearby store captured the altercation and was given to police.
“It pretty much just shows the fight in the middle of the intersection,” store employee Bryan Romandia told the local news.
“It looks like it is one against six, but you can’t really tell.
“It looks like a big old scrum and then it looks like someone lunges and everyone disperses from there and there is this discolouration on his shirt and he just walks out of the camera.”
“He walks away from the intersection. I couldn’t see any weapon at all.”
