The incident happened outside his home last Thursday night.

Via NJ.com, Moore has been charged with third-degree aggravated assault for punching a woman and knocking her unconscious; he also allegedly stepped on her neck and applied pressure.

According to court documents obtained by NJ.com, the woman arrived unannounced at Moore's Linden, New Jersey, home after repeated calls to Moore went unreturned. When the woman stood up and began yelling at him, Moore allegedly punched her in the face, causing her to lose consciousness.

The woman said she sent Moore multiple text messages on Thursday night, but when he did not respond she went to his home and was confronted by a second woman, who approached her vehicle.

According to an affidavit filed by police, the woman attempted multiple times to contact Moore on Thursday via text message.

She ended up going round to his house, where she saw another woman walking out.

Moore is "accused of watching as they assaulted each other until the complainant fell to the ground and he became physical".

Moore was drafted by the Saints in the sixth round of the 2018 draft before he joined the Giants past year. "Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation", the team said.

"The claimant in this matter showed up unannounced and unsolicited at Mr. Moore's home to begin an altercation with Mr. Moore's girlfriend and invent these accusations", attorney Alex Spiro said in a statement released through Moore's National Football League agent to NJ Advance Media.

But when she got there, another woman - identified by Moore's lawyers as his "girlfriend" - came out to confront her and the pair began scrapping, according to the criminal complaint filed in Linden City municipal court.

Players involved in a domestic violence incident are suspended for six-games for their first offense and can be banned for life for any subsequent offences.

Moore was undrafted out of Boston College in 2018 and had been expected to compete for a backup roster spot and play special teams on the Giants before his suspension.
