PARIS The two American service members who tackled a gunman on a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris rushed him even though he was fully armed, then grabbed him by the neck and beat him over the head with his own automatic rifle until he was unconscious, one of them said in television interviews here on Saturday.

..

The suspect entered the train car carrying an AK-47 and a handgun, according to Alek Skarlatos, the service member who was interviewed. I looked over at Spencer and said, Lets go, said Mr. Skarlatos, identified as a specialist in the Oregon Army National Guard returning from Afghanistan. With him was a friend, Airman First Class Spencer Stone. And he jumped, Mr. Skarlatos said. I followed behind him by about three seconds. Spencer got the guy first, grabbed the guy by the neck, I grabbed the handgun.

..

The Pentagon confirmed the Americans identities.

..

The suspect wounded at least one passenger before the two men subdued him, and their quick action averted what officials said could have been a blood bath. On Saturday morning the French news media, government and social media praised their actions, and President Obama also hailed their bravery.

..

A third American, Anthony Sadler, a friend of the two servicemen who was traveling with them, also helped restrain the suspect.

..

All three Americans were decorated with an honor by the French city of Arras, where the train pulled in after the episode. President Franis Hollande of France will meet with them in coming days, the ys Palace announced.

..

Mr. Stone was severely cut by the suspect in the neck and hand and received treatment at a hospital in northern France. His injuries are not considered life-threatening. An amateur video taken in the immediate aftermath and uploaded to YouTube shows the suspect on the ground with his legs in the air and his hands tied behind his back, while another man apparently Mr. Stone, kneels shirtless and evidently in pain. Groans are heard, and a voice saying, Dude, I tried to shoot him.

..

The suspect was identified by Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve of France on Saturday as a 26-year-old Moroccan man known to Spanish authorities as belonging to the radical Islamist movement. Mr. Cazeneuve, however, cautioned that the French police had not yet fully confirmed his identity. French officials had identified the man as a security risk, but he was not under surveillance and had apparently spent little time in France.
