Sketches Of Suspects In Spencer Stone Stabbing Released


(AP) — The Sacramento Police Department is asking for help in identifying two suspects involved in the stabbing of a U.S. Airman hailed as a hero for helping to stop a terror attack on a Paris-bound train over the summer.

The department on Saturday released two composite sketches that show what the suspects are believed to look like based on witnesses of the Oct. 8 attack against U.S. Air Force Airman Spencer Stone.

Police say the suspects are two Asian or Filipino men who on the day of the attack were wearing white shirts and blue jeans.

The 23-year-old Stone was knifed three times in the torso shortly after leaving a bar where an hour earlier patrons had applauded him for helping tackle a gunman with ties to radical Islam in August.

He was released Thursday from UC Davis Medical Center.
