PORTLAND - Three men were stabbed multiple times during a huge dance party on Government Island Friday night, police said.
One of the victims suffered serious injuries and the others were minor. Rescuers said they located the three victims in a crowd of nearly 1000 people partying to a DJ.
Emergency personnel from multiple agencies responded to the island Saturday at about 1:45 a.m. on a report of a fight in progress.
The victims were transported off the island by boat and taken to an area hospital.
A suspect - a male in his 30's - was arrested and investigators said there were no other persons of interest at large.
Government Island belongs to the Port of Portland, but is run by the state parks department.
