Tiffin stabbing victim says he's lucky to be alive

Posted: Updated:
TIFFIN, Ohio -

Vyshawn Arnold says he's lucky to be alive. He's one of three victims police say were stabbed in Tiffin by Bobby C. Moore.

Moore, 32, is currently behind bars at the Seneca County Jail charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of felonious assault. Officers recovered a knife at the scene and caught Moore when he tried to flee the scene.

Sharon Ratliff, who lives across the street from the crime scene, says the attack was unprovoked. "The other boys were just minding their own business, not doing nothing. He's the one that started the whole thing. Stabbing...stabbing...stabbing."

Ratliff is also Moore's stepmother. "I've tried and tried to get through to that boy. To tell him to please straighten up."

Victim Vyshawn Arnold says, "The knife that they said he grabbed and the way he was stabbing recklessly, aimlessly... It could have been a lot more worse than minor injuries and stitches."

Arnold didn't realize he was stabbed at first.

"I didn't know I was stabbed. My girlfriend had after everything settled down. She was checking me and noticed I was stabbed in the back. I didn't know I was stabbed in the thigh until I came out of the house."

Arnold says he was checking in on his friends next door after he heard some noise, when Moore barged in.

"We talked to everybody in the house and that's when I seen him storming towards the screen door, swing it open and threw his hands up saying 'You got a problem with me?'"

Witnesses say a fight then broke out, which spilled outside.

Brandi Brock, 22, was critically struck on her forearm. Kenyaha Jackson, 24, was stabbed in the upper back. Brock is hospitalized in fair condition. Jackson was treated and released.

Police say the motive is still under investigation.
