Stone was stabbed three times in the torso by an assailant who appears to have attacked him from behind during a brawl outside a nightclub in Sacramento at around 12:45 a.m., police said. Police are still looking for two suspects in the stabbing.

Stone, along with his childhood friends Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, received France's Legion d'Honneur for their roles subduing a gunman who opened fire on a Paris-bound train in August. Stone was stabbed with a box cutter several times during that incident.
