PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Officials say three men suffered multiple stabbing wounds, with one sustaining serious injuries, at a large dance party on Government Island.
Emergency personnel from multiple agencies responded to the island Saturday at about 1:45 a.m. on a report of a fight in progress.
Rescuers located the three victims in a crowd of nearly 1000 people partying to a DJ. The victims were transported off the island by boat and taken to an area hospital. Two of the victims are considered in stable condition.
A suspect — a male in his 30's — has been arrested and investigators say there is no other person or persons of interest at large.
Government Island belongs to the Port of Portland, but is run by the state parks department.
