Delicia Cordon, the ex-girlfriend of NFL player LeSean McCoy, told police that she believed McCoy was involved with the home invasion and assault that left her bruised and bloodied, a recently released 911 call reveals.
In the audio of the call obtained by ESPN on Thursday, Cordon told a 911 dispatcher that she believed that the assault had “something to do with my ex-boyfriend.” A male assailant entered the Georgia home Cordon shares with McCoy at around 3 a.m. on Monday, and assaulted Cordon by hitting her in the face with a firearm multiple times, according to statement released Tuesday by Cordon’s attorney, Tanya Mitchell Graham. Graham later told CBS News that her client is no longer certain that McCoy had anything to do with the attack.
The attacker entered the home “with no signs of forced entry” and specifically demanded jewelry from Cordon that McCoy had previously given to her as a gift, and which he had repeatedly request she return, Graham claimed in the release.
During the 911 call, Cordon expressed her belief that McCoy was involved, telling a dispatcher, “I have cameras all outside my house, and my boyfriend who I feel like did this — who set me up — is going to see us on the cameras outside.”
“We’re breaking up, and he wants all his jewelry back,” she continued.
In addition to being hit repeatedly with a firearm, Cordon’s wrist was injured when the assailant couldn’t remove the bracelets she was wearing, her lawyer said. In the 911 call, Cordon can be heard telling the dispatcher that she is bleeding, explaining, “my face is demolished right now.”
Cordon told the dispatcher that the assailant left through the front door and seemed to believe that McCoy had instructed him to do so.
“I’m telling you, I’m telling you, that guy is [redacted],” Cordon said during the call. “He must have known the camera system. LeSean must have told him. There’s no camera in the front.”
An event report released by police in Milton, Georgia and obtained by ESPN did not identify a suspect, who they described as being a black man of unknown age who wore a mask and dressed in all black.
The report also stated that the caller thought her 16-year-old son was missing, but later made contact with him, according to ESPN.
A woman claiming to be Cordon’s best friend posted a graphic photo of Cordon’s injuries on social media on Tuesday, accusing McCoy of wrongdoing.
The Buffalo Bills running back denied all allegations of abuse via a social media statement of his own, writing, “For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”
According to incident reports obtained by ESPN, police had been called to Cordon and McCoy’s home for domestic disputes on July 3, 2017, and April 11, 2018. During the July incident, McCoy tried to evict Cordon by placing her things in the driveway but was told by police that he’d have to go through proper legal proceedings to do so, according to ESPN.
McCoy told police during the July incident that he and Cordon had broken up and he was concerned that Cordon would take things from the home or make false accusations about him, and that he wanted to be careful around Cordon because of the “climate of domestic abuse in his profession,” according to reports obtained by ESPN. McCoy also claimed that Cordon had refused to return jewelry that McCoy had been loaned.
During the April incident, McCoy tried to remove furniture that Cordon wanted to keep in the home, and later agreed not to do so, ESPN reports.
Cordon and McCoy have been in an ongoing dispute regarding eviction proceedings. McCoy attempted to evict Cordon while they were both out of town last month by having his friends and family move Cordon’s things out of the house, Graham’s release claimed. Police stopped that from happening after Cordon saw what was happening on a live stream of her surveillance cameras and called it in.
