From The AirForceTimes:
The victim suffered “multiple stab wounds to the torso,” KCRA‑TV reported. Police initially did not think the stabbing victim would survive and began treating the incident as a homicide investigation, but it now appears that the victim will pull through.
Although the Air Force has identified Stone as the stabbing victim, Sacramento police have not officially named the person who was stabbed.
Sacramento police said they received a call from about the stabbing from a passerby, a news release says.
“It is believed that the victim was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to the victim being stabbed multiple times in his upper body,” the news release says. “Detectives were called to the scene to assist with the investigation and the victim is currently being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.”
Airman Stone is currently in stable condition. It is a heck of a coincidence that he of all people has been stabbed, it is almost certain jihadis have a mark on his head, but it would also make sense that he might try to break up a fight if he witnessed it. Stay tuned, I will pass along more details as I come across them.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Airman Stone.
