Spencer Stone, one of three brave Americans who stopped a terror attack on a French train in Aug. 2015, has been stabbed! Spencer suffered multiple stab wounds during a fight in Sacramento on Oct. 7, but is reportedly in stable condition.

That’s no way to treat a hero! Spencer Stone, the 23-year old U.S Airman First Class who helped thwart a French terrorist attack in August, has been stabbed again! Spencer is now recovering in a Sacramento hospital after he was reportedly attacked with a knife during a fight!

Spencer was a hero one more time after he was stabbed while protecting a friend from a knife-wielding attacker, reports TMZ. The attack happened in the early morning of Oct. 8, after Spencer was enjoying a night out on the town in Sacramento, California.

A spokesperson with the Sacramento Police department tells HollywoodLife.com: “We received a call at 12:46am. Spencer Stone was with a group of friends when an altercation with someone outside the group emerged. The physical altercation led to multiple stabbings. Stone was the only person injured. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital. At this time there are no suspects and there is no one in custody. The case is under investigation.”

Spencer was reportedly stabbed multiple times in the torso. A spokesman for the US Air Force told NBC News that the hero was in stable condition. “We do not have an information at to the events preceding the incident,” the spokesperson added. Deputy Chief Ken Bernard of Sacramento Police said this attack was “between two groups of folks who were enjoying the nightlife. This was not related to terrorism in any way and we know it was not related to what happened in France.”

Police are reportedly investigating the incident, reports KCRA. A woman and a man were questioned about the attack, but neither was detained. Police have yet to release a description of the alleged stabber.

Spencer was one of the three men who tackled Ayoub El Khazzani, a Morocco-born terrorist, after he opened fire on a Paris-bound train in August 2015. Spencer, along with friends Anthony Sadler and Army National Guard Spec. Alek Skarlatos, detained Ayoub, preventing a possible mass shooting. During the scuffle, Ayoub stabbed Spencer with a box cutter and the Airman reportedly needed 20 staples and eight stitches to fix the wound in his neck, reports The Washington Post. Spencer and his friends each received France’s highest award, the Legion d’Honneur, for their bravery.
