(CBS) -- Police say the attack around 3:00 am Tuesday was not random. Hours later, photos of Delicia Cordon's bloody face appeared online. She is the ex-girlfriend of Buffalo Bills all-pro running back LeSean McCoy.
In a statement, Cordon's attorney said "... A male assailant who entered the home..." while Cordon was sleeping, "...demanded specific items of jewelry..." McCoy had given her, and "...hit Ms. Cordon in the face with a firearm multiple times..."
While she didn't accuse McCoy of ordering the attack, Cordon's attorney said "…He would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive."
"There's a very clear implication that Mr. McCoy is either involved in this attack or, at the very least, didn't seem to show a whole lot of interest in Ms. Cordon's health after the attack," says Yahoo! Sports Senior Writer Jay Busbee.
Court filings show McCoy has tried to kick Cordon out of his house twice in the last year, saying she has been living rent-free for the last 5 months even though they were no longer in a relationship.
McCoy is the latest NFL star to be accused of domestic violence. Over the last 4 years, the league has been criticized for seemingly turning the other way.
Cordon's lawyer said it was possible the home security system live-streamed the attack. McCoy has called the allegations totally baseless and offensive.
