Train hero Airman Spencer Stone was stabbed 6 blocks from where I live in downtown Sacramento. I began researching the crime, and interviewing witnesses the moment I heard about it.
Airman Stone was stabbed in front of A&P Liquors on 21st and K streets. The entire fight was caught on the store’s surveillance camera.
When I arrived at the scene the next morning, a hazmat worker was still cleaning Airman Stone’s blood from the sidewalk.
Just one month prior to the attack, Airman Stone was two feet from me at a parade honoring him on 9-11. It’s hard to fathom that several weeks later, some thug scumbags almost killed him.
I spoke with the owner of the store the day after the stabbing. The owner (John) told me that while he didn’t see the attack, there was more to the story than was being told by police & news media. He spoke of a second video, taken with a cell phone, that wasn’t released. The owner said that a police officer who manages the surveillance camera may have shot the other video. He said that police took both videos.
I interviewed an employee of A&P Liquors the next night, and another the following night. Neither saw the attack, even though one of them was working the night of the assault on Stone. I returned to the store two nights later and spoke with an employee who was working the night of the attack, and had witnessed the entire ordeal from outside the establishment.
The employee, Eric Cain, said that he first saw a woman being slapped by one of the Asian males who would later stab Airman Stone. Apparently, this is when Stone got involved, in order to defend the woman.
Most media does not report the fact that the woman Stone was defending, was actually with his attackers.
Cain went on to say that after the woman was slapped, Stone & his attackers began fighting. The woman who was slapped stepped into the scrum, and was punched in the face by one of Stone’s attackers. Shortly after that, Stone was stabbed, and his attackers fled. Cain said that he saw the woman who was assaulted actually get into the car with those who hit her, and who had stabbed Airman Stone.
