LOS ANGELES, United States, Oct 8 – One of three Americans who recently helped thwart a terror attack on a packed train bound for Paris has been stabbed in his home state of California but is expected to survive, authorities said Thursday.

A US Air Force spokesman confirmed that 23-year-old Airman Spencer Stone had been stabbed in Sacramento and taken to a local hospital.

“He is in stable condition,” Lieutenant Colonel Chris Karns told AFP. “We are still trying to get the details.”

Officer Traci Trapani, a spokeswoman for the Sacramento police department, told AFP that police received a call at 12:46am about a person who had been stabbed outside a bar in the city’s downtown area.

“The victim had sustained multiple stab wounds in his upper torso or upper body but he is in stable condition and is expected to survive,” Trapani said, adding that the suspect had fled the scene.

She said it was unclear what prompted the fight and that Stone was the only victim.
