During a short press conference, a Sacramento Police Department spokesperson gave a limited description of the suspects and what led to the stabbing of Airman Spencer Stone saying it was not related to terror but was an “unfortunate incident between two groups of people.”
Police confirmed Stone was “stabbed more than once with non-life-threatening, but very significant injuries.” The suspects are two male Asian adults who were wearing white t-shirts and blue jeans at the time of the stabbing. The suspects fled in dark color Toyota Camry.
Anyone with information about the incident or suspects should call the Sacramento Police at 916-808-0650 or 916-443-HELP.

This morning, police in Sacramento, California are searching for one suspect in the stabbing of Spencer Stone, who was one of three American friends who stopped a terrorist attack aboard a French train earlier this summer.
According to police reports, Spencer was leaving a bar late Wednesday night, when a fight occurred. Spencer was stabbed multiple times in the chest and was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. “Airman First Class Stone was in stable condition on Thursday, an Air Force spokesperson said.’He is alive and in stable condition at this time,’ the spokesperson said. ‘We do not have any information as to the events preceding the incident.'”
In August, Airman First Class Spencer was on a train bound for Amsterdam, when he and two friends tackled and subdued terrorist Ayooub El-Khazaani. So far, the attack appears random and police do not believe the stabbing is connected to Spencer’s heroic actions on the French train.
Two witnesses were questioned and released, however, no description of the assailant has been released.
