A New Year's Eve party in Fort Salonga turned violent early Saturday, Suffolk County police said, after three men who were denied entry returned with two more men, a pole and knives and attacked partygoers.

Three men at the party on Makamah Road were stabbed and another received head lacerations during the melee, police said. All were treated at Huntington Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Second Squad detectives arrested five men they said barged into the party and assaulted guests: East Northport residents Frank Curra, 22, of Ninth Avenue; Thomas Savocchi, 20, of Kimberly Drive; and Jacob Savocchi, 18, of Kimberly Drive; along with Victor Smith, 22, of Applegate Drive, Central Islip; and Blaise Felice, 20, of Acre View Drive, Northport. They were scheduled to be arraigned yesterday on first-degree burglary and second-degree assault charges in First District Court in Central Islip.

No information about the court proceedings was available Saturday afternoon.

Police said the disturbance began soon after three of the five men entered the party at about 11:30 p.m. Friday but got into an argument with the host and some guests.

It was unclear what caused the dispute. But the men left and came back about an hour later at about 2 a.m. with two friends, carrying a pole and knives, police said.

The group muscled its way into the party and began striking several people, police said.

"It was just a bunch of trespassers," said Kenneth Femiano, who lives at the house, adding that his family is fine. He declined to comment further.

As police were at the hospital to interview four guests who were hurt at the party, the five alleged attackers showed up at the hospital for treatment of wounds that two of them had received during the scuffle, police said, and were arrested there.
