Antioch police arrest two men, kill dog during domestic violence call on Friday

By Sergeant Dimitri Barakos, Antioch Police Community Policing Bureau

On November 8th, 2013 at 4:11 p.m., an anonymous caller stated that a female was being beaten by her boyfriend at a residence in Antioch. The caller stated that Rocco Moore, a 34-year old Concord resident, had threatened to shoot the female victim if the police were called. Officers arrived at the location in the 500 block of Bridle Way and set up a perimeter around the residence. Officers then entered the open garage door of the residence where they encountered Moore and Richard Jobe, a 28-year old man, in the garage. Moore reached for his waistband and hid behind a mattress in the cluttered garage. Jobe refused to obey officers’ commands. A dog that was in the garage came towards the officers and was shot and killed.

Moore reemerged from behind the mattress and complied. Jobe began fighting with the officers and was eventually subdued. Jobe and Moore were taken into custody. A loaded stolen firearm was located by the mattress Moore was hiding behind. Jobe was transported to a local hospital for treatment from injuries he sustained while fighting with the officers. Moore and Jobe were transported to the Martinez Detention Facility and charged with numerous crimes. The female victim told police that she was beaten by Moore and held against her will by him as well.

Any further inquiries into the status of this case should be done via the Media Access Telephone Line 925.779.6894. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
