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.
