Abstract: A set $S$ in a linear space is said to have the three-point convexity property ${P_3}$ iff for each triple of points $x,\;y,\;z$ of $S$, at least one of the segments $xy,\;xz,\;yz$ is a subset of $S$. It is proved that if $S$ is a compact set in Euclidean space of dimension at least three with at least one point interior to its convex kernel and if the set of points of local nonconvexity of $S$ is interior to its convex hull, then $S$ has property ${P_3}$ iff it is the union of two convex sets.
