    The Sacramento Police Department is asking for help in identifying two suspects involved in the assault of U.S. Air Force Airman Spencer Stone.

    The airman hailed as a hero for helping thwart a European terror attack was knifed three times in the torso on Oct. 8 in a fight near a bar in Sacramento.

    The brawl occurred shortly after Stone, 23, left a nightclub where patrons applauded him for helping tackle a gunman with ties to radical Islam on a Paris-bound passenger train in August. Police say the assault had nothing to do with the European terror plot.

    Grainy surveillance video from outside a liquor store shows a large man who appears to be Stone fighting a half dozen people at an intersection. No arrests have been made.

    The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information to contact the dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
