Moore and Cook were arrested early Saturday morning after a large fight was reported in the first block of Miami Street.
Moore allegedly stabbed VyShawn Arnold, 23, after first instigating a fight with him, according to court documents.
Moore had left the Miami Street apartment after a short, physical fight with Arnold, and returned carrying a knife, according to court documents. He then approached Arnold and stabbed him in the inner thigh and upper back, documents state.
A man who tried to intervene, Kenyaha Jackson, 24, was attacked by Moore and was stabbed in the upper back.
Brandi Brock, 22, who also tried to intervene in the altercation, was stabbed in the arm.
According to court documents, Moore also punched another man before the stabbings.
Court documents state Cook punched a man who tried to intervene during the altercation.
That man had witnessed the altercation and ran to the apartment and tried to get the knife away from Moore. As he got the knife, Cook allegedly punched him.
Lt. Mark Marquis of the Tiffin Police Department said Monday night Jackson and Arnold were released from hospitals Saturday. He said Brock, who was listed in fair condition Saturday at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, has not yet been released.
If convicted, Moore faces life in prison. He is scheduled to appear in court Friday for a preliminary hearing.
"This is about as serious as it gets," Repp said of Moore's charges during the hearing Monday.
If convicted of the assault charge, Cook faces up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Moore and Cook each have several previous convictions, Drew Wood, a Tiffin city prosecutor, said Monday during the hearings.
Cook's previous convictions include domestic violence, drug trafficking and assault, Wood said.
Moore's previous convictions include felonious assault, assault, drug-related charges, obstructing official business and criminal damaging.
