Two women were injured during a violent home invasion at the Milton, Georgia residence of Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy early Tuesday.
Milton police responded to a 911 call from the residence referencing a female who was "assaulted, hit in the head and locked in the bathroom.”
Police say two women were injured during the home invasion around 3 a.m Tuesday. One female was treated for head and facial injuries at North Fulton Regional Hospital and released.
The female was later identified as McCoy's ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon.
The other woman is Cordon's cousin who was residing in the home with Cordon and her three children.
After the assault, a woman uploaded a graphic photo of Cordon's injuries to Instagram.com. The woman accused McCoy of assaulting Cordon. The post has since been deleted.
Police say McCoy's home was "targeted" and not a random home invasion.
In a statement obtained by ABC News, Cordon's lawyer said: “The assailant demanded specific items of jewelry that had previously been gifted to Ms. Cordon by Mr. McCoy, which Mr. McCoy had requested back on many occasions."
The lawyer said there was no sign of forced entry, implying that the intruder had a key.
A 911 dispatcher also noted that surveillance footage, possibly from a security system, had been removed from the home.
Cordon and her children were in the process of being evicted from McCoy's home in an upscale suburb of Atlanta.
McCoy and Cordon were scheduled to appear in court for an eviction hearing on the day of the incident.
Cordon and her children lived with Cordon since 2016. The pro athlete took to Instagram.com on Tuesday to deny the allegations that he assaulted Cordon. He called the allegations “totally baseless and offensive”, and added that he had not seen Cordon in years.
Cordon's eviction hearing has been pushed back to August 14, according to Channel 2 Action News.
