Transcript for Paris Train 'Hero' Spencer Stone Speaks Out on Stabbing
Spencer stone, the hero who helped top that terror attack on a French train is now speaking out for the first time since he was stabbed outside a nightclub in his hometown. A suspect has been arrested and ABC's David Wright has the story. I over thought I would ever get stabbed in nye life. The fact that it happened twice within a two-month period is insane. Reporter: Staff sergeant Spencer stone speaking for the first time since this violent altercation caught on security cameras last month outside a Sacramento nightclub. They didn't know who I was. They were just out there maybe looking for trouble, looking to get in a fight. Reporter: Just this week Sacramento police arrested 28-year-old James Tran in connection with the stabbing. Police say they identified him partly through the security footage which showed the suspect's getaway vehicle. Authorities say they stopped Tran's car Tuesday near his home. Then arrested him for the charge of attempted murder on Mr. Stone. Reporter: The air force had just promoted stone and the French gave him the legion of honor for his P in stopping a gunman armed with an ak-47 on board a Paris bound train in August. The gunman slashed stone with a box cutter. But he and his friends still managed to hog tie the man and give first aid to a fellow passenger. I'm just glad that, you know, I've had enough training to be helpful in those situations. Reporter: Stone and his two friends got a hero's well when they came back to Sacramento. Now the airman is recovering from wounds in the second stabbing. With wounds in his lungs, liver and heart. I hope this doesn't define me for the rest of my life. I hope I can use everything that's being offered to me to, you know, do good in other people's lives. Reporter: Even after two close calls in two months, staff sergeant stone counts himself lucky. For "Good morning America," David Wright, ABC news, new York.
