McCoy's ex-girlfriend alleges possible setup in home invasion

The ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy told police McCoy possibly “set her up” in the Tuesday home invasion that resulted in her being the victim of an alleged assault.

A note in an event report released by Milton, Ga., police Thursday regarding the home invasion says Delicia Cordon, an ex-girlfriend of McCoy, “poss thinks her ex boyfriend poss set her up.”

The report says the unidentified female who called police “got beat in the head and locked in the bathroom.”

Tanya Mitchell Graham, the attorney for Cordon, released a statement Tuesday evening saying a man entered the home Cordon shares with McCoy with no signs of forced entry, hit Cordon multiple times in the face with a gun, demanded jewelry and cash, and injured her head, face, arms and wrist.

Thursday’s report described the unidentified suspect as a black male of an unknown age that was wearing a mask and dressed in all black.

Police released a redacted version of their report Wednesday, which listed the crimes of armed robbery, aggravated assault with a firearm, residential burglary without force and aggravated battery.

Police also released Thursday incident reports from domestic disputes between McCoy and Cordon on July 3, 2017, and April 11, 2018, and a report of an incident last month involving McCoy’s mother.

During the July 2017 incident, McCoy told police the couple had broken up, and he had begun placing Cordon’s personal items on the driveway, according to the report. He told police he was concerned Cordon would make “false accusations” about him and that he wanted to be careful because of the “climate of domestic abuse in his profession.”

Police told McCoy he couldn’t kick Cordon out without official eviction proceedings and advised him to “stay away from Cordon” as the result of his concerns.

Cordon was then arrested when she arrived at the home during the July call for an outstanding warrant in Atlanta for failure to appear in court, according to the report.

The April incident once again had McCoy removing furniture from the home after police were called, the caller identifying McCoy as their boyfriend.

Another incident took place June 1, when McCoy’s mother, Daphne McCoy, told police she was removing her son’s items from the home so he did “not have to deal with Delicia.” Cordon had remotely viewed security camera footage of the items being removed from the home, according to details released by police.

Daphne McCoy told police her son allowed Cordon to stay in the home until it was sold because she had two kids.

LeSean McCoy has hired prominent defense attorney Don Samuel as the investigation continues, according to multiple reports Wednesday. Samuel, based in Atlanta, was part of the defense team when former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was charged with murder in 2000. The charges were later dropped.

Cordon’s attorneys’ statement added that the robber demanded specific jewelry items that McCoy had gifted to Cordon, items McCoy had previously requested back and had suggested Cordon might be robbed of because of their expense.

Earlier Tuesday, an unidentified Instagram user posted a photo of a woman — whom the user identified as Cordon, and a close friend of hers — with a bloodied and bruised face, and accused McCoy of being responsible for the injuries seen in the image. The post went on to accuse McCoy of beating his dog into kidney failure, “viciously” beating his son and using illegal steroids.

McCoy posted a statement on Instagram after the original image and accusations were posted, reading, “For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Further more (sic), I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved for months.”

The Bills said Tuesday in a statement, “We have spoken to LeSean and been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information.”

League spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is “reviewing the matter.”

McCoy, who turns 30 on Thursday, rushed for 1,138 yards and six touchdowns last season. He’s a six-time Pro Bowl selection in his nine NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Bills.
