(CNN) — Authorities in New York’s Nassau County are investigating the stabbing of reputed former mob boss John A. “Junior” Gotti, but the victim has not been cooperating with the investigation, according to police.

Aside from telling authorities he was stabbed while in the parking lot of a pharmacy, Gotti didn’t say what happened Sunday night, police said Monday

Gotti arrived at a Syosset hospital on Sunday evening at 10 p.m. seeking treatment for a stab wound. Per hospital protocol, the facility notified authorities, and Nassau police responded.

Gotti said he had been stabbed in the parking lot of a CVS store in Syosset at around 9:45 p.m. Sunday. He refused to answer any further questions, according to Nassau police.

Junior Gotti has long insisted that he retired from organized crime after pleading guilty in 1999 to racketeering and agreeing to serve five years in prison. He was released in 2005.
