Three men were stabbed Wednesday during a fight at a northern Bellport apartment complex, authorities said.

A 911 caller at 4 p.m. reported a fight had broke out in the pool area of the Atlantic Point complex near Alexan Boulevard, Suffolk police said.

When the South Country Ambulance crew arrived at Foxglove Circle, near the pool area, it found two victims suffering from "penetrating" but not life-threatening wounds to their torsos, said ambulance chief Gregory C. Miglino Jr.

The third man was stabbed in the shoulder, also not a life-threatening injury, he said.
