Spencer Stone, one of the heroes who tackled and subdued an apparent terrorist aboard a Paris-bound train August, was stabbed and critically wounded last night during a fight on K Street in Sacramento, California.
As the Sacramento Bee reports, the airman was out with a group of friends, visiting several bars Wednesday night including the gay Badlands nightclub, and an altercation ensued with another group of men on the street. The fight, perhaps precipitated by something that occurred inside the club, resulted in Stone getting stabbed.
Surveillance video shows “a group of about eight men in a wild melee and one of the men, apparently Stone, suddenly sporting what appears to be a large blood stain on his shirt front. The stabbing is not visible, and police said no one else suffered injuries.”
CBS Sacramento says that Stone is in “serious condition” after suffering multiple stab wounds. The two suspects in the stabbing are described only as Asian males.

Stone was with two other Sacramento-area men, Spc. Alek Skarlatos of the Oregon National Guard and friend Anthony Sadler, when they were able to subdue suspected terrorist Ayoub El-Khazzani on August 21. Stone subsequently received a Purple Heart honor and the Airman’s Medal at a Pentagon ceremony last month.
It was not previously known or discussed in the media that Stone was gay — and maybe the two others including hot muscle stud Skarlatos are too?
