Multiple People Are Stabbed on a Party Boat in Brooklyn

Two men were stabbed and another was hit in the head with a bottle on a crowded party boat in Brooklyn on Saturday evening, the authorities said.

The men were all hospitalized with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, police and fire officials said. The attacks forced the evacuation of more than 1,000 passengers from the boat, the police said, a white cruise ship called the Cornucopia Majesty, which was docked at Pier 4 at the Brooklyn Army Terminal.

A 32-year-old man was stabbed in the torso, a 40-year-old man was stabbed several times in the chest and abdomen and a 28-year-old man was hit in the head with a bottle, the police said. All three men were taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn.

The stabbings happened just after 5 p.m., the police said. No arrests had been made as of Saturday evening, and it was unclear how many attackers had been involved.

The police said they believed that a dispute had escalated into a physical altercation, but that the events leading up to the stabbings were still under investigation.

This is a breaking story that will be updated.
