The estranged live-in girlfriend of Buffalo Bills star LeSean McCoy says a home invader beat her bloody Tuesday as he specifically sought jewelry McCoy gave her and demanded back amid an eviction battle.
The assailant was able to enter the suburban Atlanta house owned by McCoy without any sign of forced entry while Delicia Cordon was fast asleep around 3 a.m., Cordon’s lawyers said in a statement to the Daily News.
“He hit Ms. Cordon in the face with a firearm multiple times while demanding specific items of jewelry and cash from her. Ms. Cordon sustained multiple injuries to her head, face and arms during this horrendous attack,” the statement from the firm of Tanya Mitchell Graham said.
The statement helped explain why a close friend of Cordon’s posted a graphic photo on Instagram Tuesday that showed Cordon with a badly swollen eye and streams of blood running down her face.
The friend, Mia Boykin, touched off a firestorm when she blamed McCoy for the attack and claimed he previously beat his young son and dog.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” McCoy said in response on social media. “Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
According to Cordon’s lawyers, the assailant also bruised Cordon’s arm when he could not get bracelets off her wrist.
The statement from the law firm claimed McCoy not only requested the specific jewelry be returned in the past, “he would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.”
A female cousin was at the residence as well early Tuesday and was pistol-whipped in the back of her head, the statement said.
Georgia police confirmed Tuesday they were looking into a violent “home invasion” at the address linked to McCoy through public records.
They said officers responded to a home invasion call at a residence on Hickory Pass at approximately 3:18 a.m. Tuesday.
“The preliminary investigation indicates that this residence was specifically targeted by the suspect or suspects, and not a random incident,” the statement sent by Milton Police Capt. Charles Barstow said.
“When officers arrived, they found one victim who had been physically assaulted by a lone intruder. During the altercation, the suspect demanded specific items from the victim,” the statement said.
One adult female victim was treated and released from North Fulton Regional Hospital while a second adult female suffered a minor injury, police said.
The Bills said they “have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League” as they continue to gather information.
The league did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The original post by Boykin called McCoy “the devil” and “an animal.”
“We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage … all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!” the friend wrote.
While the initial post was quickly deleted, Boykin said in a follow-up message that she was telling the truth.
“For the record, Delicia’s lawyer forced me to remove that post. I stand by what I said,” she maintained.
Cordon’s law firm said late Tuesday that Cordon was behind an effort to evict her from his house even though court paperwork claims the couple discussed marriage as recently as May.
The lawyers said Cordon was surprised when McCoy’s family, friends and laborers attempted to “wrongfully evict” her on June 1 while she was out of state attending her sister’s graduation.
They said Cordon learned about the eviction from the live streaming of the home’s security system to her cell phone. She contacted the police, and the wrongful eviction was stopped, the lawyers said.
After that, McCoy installed a new security system and did not give Cordon any information on how to arm or disarm the alarm.
“Since this morning’s attack on Ms. Cordon, Mr. McCoy has not contacted her to check on her condition or to see what was going on at the residence,” the statement from Cordon’s lawyers said. “She has no idea whether Mr. McCoy was able to live stream to see the incident or to see the law enforcement vehicles, fire truck and ambulance at his home.”
A rep for McCoy claimed Tuesday that Cordon had disabled the cameras.
On June 6, an eviction proceeding was filed against Cordon by McCoy’s friend Tamarcus (TJ) Porter, legal paperwork obtained by The News confirmed.
A June 22 response filing signed by Graham said Cordon and her children had lived in the house since October 2016.
“On or about Memorial Day, May 28, 2018, plaintiff was discussing marriage with defendant Cordon. In fact, on May 29, 2018, Plaintiff gave defendant Cordon a substantial gift,” the filing states.
Graham’s associate, Kiarra Brown, attended a hearing on the eviction battle Tuesday, the firm said.
Another associate attorney, Demetrius Price, is “working on the potential personal injury claim for Ms. Cordon,” the firm said.
