(UPI) -- John A. Gotti, the reputed former mob boss, was stabbed on Long Island on Sunday night but is refusing to cooperate with police investigating the incident.

Gotti, the son of "Dapper Don" John Gotti, Jr., and allegedly the former boss of the Gambino crime family in New York, said he was stabbed while breaking up a fight between strangers in a CVS parking lot in Syosset, New York.

Police, who were notified at 9:45 p.m. after Gotti drove himself to the hospital, said they have no evidence to back up Gotti's story. He was treated at North Shore University Hospital and released.

"He's being very uncooperative," an official said. "He says these guys were fighting and he jumps in and is this big savior and he gets stabbed in the stomach."

Detectives said they are reviewing surveillance video from the scene.
