On June 1, LeSean McCoy's mother showed up at his Georgia home because her son wanted her "to get his things for him so that he did not have to deal" with his estranged girlfriend, according to a police report.
McCoy's mother, Daphne McCoy, and others brought a moving truck to the home to load furniture and other items.
Daphne McCoy told police on June 1 that her son planned to sell the house in the Atlanta suburb of Milton. McCoy was willing to let his ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, stay there, according to the report, obtained by the Democrat and Chronicle through a records request.
McCoy, the star running back with the Buffalo Bills, was then in Buffalo training with the team.
Daphne McCoy told police that "LeSean told her that Delicia could stay in the house until it was sold since she had two small children." It's unclear from the report if McCoy planned to completely empty the house of furniture.
The police report adds more detail to the events that sparked McCoy's recent attempts to evict Cordon and her children from a previous relationship. And the attempted eviction is likely part of a police investigation into a robbery and assault on Cordon at McCoy's home.
Cordon was beaten during an early-morning July 10 home invasion at the house, according to police accounts and a statement from Cordon's attorney. Friends of Cordon have alleged on social media that McCoy hired individuals to rob the home, and Cordon's Atlanta attorney, Tanya Michelle Graham, said that McCoy wanted jewelry returned that McCoy had given her.
McCoy has not been charged with a crime and has denied the allegations.
Attorney Graham's statement also discussed the June 1 incident at McCoy's home, saying that McCoy had friends and family remove items that belonged to Cordon. Cordon saw the goods being taken from the home when she checked on the residence's security cameras through a cellphone application. She was then in Virginia at her sister's high school graduation.
Cordon called police, who went to McCoy's home shortly before 10 a.m.
Police told Daphne McCoy that the property in the home was "communal property" and could not be taken. "She stated that LeSean paid for everything inside the home and she should be able to remove those items for him," the report states.
Officers told McCoy's mother that a civil court action would be needed to divide the goods. "The movers removed all the furniture from the moving truck and put them back inside the house," the police report says. "They only left LeSean's clothing and shoes on the truck."
One officer then spoke with LeSean McCoy on the telephone about why he could not clear the home of furniture and other items. "He stated that he understood and would contact his lawyer to start the process for civil court."
"I also advised him that if he wanted Delicia out of the home he would have to start the eviction process since he was a resident of the home," the police report states. Five days later McCoy filed papers seeking to evict Cordon.
In her statement released this week, Graham alleged that McCoy had been asking that Cordon give him back jewelry he had bought for her, and she refused. McCoy "would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive," the statement said.
The robber demanded specific pieces of jewelry, and, after being unable to remove a bracelet from Cordon's wrist, hit her in the head with a gun, Graham said.
Graham said McCoy changed the security system after June 1 and Cordon could no longer access the cameras.
