On Thursday, October 8, 2015, at 12:46 a.m., the Sacramento Police Department received a call from a passerby that a subject had been stabbed in the area of 21st Street and K Street. 

The victim, later identified as Spencer Stone, was located on scene and transported to an area hospital by fire personnel.  He is currently being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.  

It is believed that Stone was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to him being stabbed multiple times in his upper body. Immediately after the assault the assailants fled the scene. Felony Assault Detectives were called to the scene to conduct an investigation.

We firmly believe that this is not a terrorism related event and that it is in no way related to the incident that occurred in France.  The assault does not appear to be a random act and is believed to be a nightlife related incident.
