HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – Bond was set at $500,000 for a man following a series of incidents in Trumbull County.
Derrick Moore, 27, of Campbell, was in court Thursday morning on multiple charges including felonious assault, aggravated menacing and vandalism. He stared into the camera as the judge read through the 12 counts against him.
One of the alleged victims who spoke outside of court said she feels Moore is a threat.
“I’m not sure why he is doing this,” she said.
Moore was arrested Tuesday night after a series of incidents that ended when he crashed his car during a police chase in Hartford Township.
One of the alleged victims claims she’s known Moore most of his adult life, saying her daughter had once dated the suspect.
“I’m not sure exactly what went wrong, but my daughter’s unable to have a relationship with him that he wants to have, and there is a lot of anger,” she said.
At one point, police say Moore went to the Yankee Lake Inn and got into a fight with an employee there. Police caught up with him outside the General Store in Orangeville, but he backed into their cruiser and sped away, only to crash a few miles down the road.
“We think he poses a flight risk because he did hit the officer’s cruiser and then flee from the scene,” said Assistant Trumbull County Prosecutor Deena DeVico.
After the victims told Judge Marty Nosich Moore has been threatening them and their children for weeks, the suspect was ordered to stay away from all of the victims. The judge then set bond at $525,000.
Moore, who has a prior conviction for assaulting an officer, will have to be placed under house arrest if he’s able to post bond in the case. He is due back in court next week.
