ATLANTA (AP) — Police responded to several nonviolent disputes at the home where Buffalo Bills star LeSean McCoy was attempting to evict his former girlfriend before an unidentified man bloodied the 34-year-old woman in a home invasion, according to reports released Thursday.

Police responded early Tuesday to the home in Milton, just outside Atlanta, after McCoy's ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon called 911. The reports from Milton police show that officers had previously been called to the home in July 2017 and in April and June of this year, but no violence was reported during any of those incidents.

In a recording released Thursday of Cordon's 911 call she can be heard describing her alleged attacker to a dispatcher and saying she believed the attack was connected with her ex-boyfriend.

"My face is demolished right now," Cordon said during the call.

A man entered the home around 3 a.m. Tuesday and demanded specific pieces of jewelry that McCoy had given to Cordon and that he had asked her to give back many times, Cordon's lawyer Tanya Mitchell Graham said in an emailed statement Tuesday.

McCoy had often suggested to Cordon that she "could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive," the statement said.

The man tried to take bracelets from her wrist, leaving bruises, and hit her in the face multiple times with a gun, the lawyer said. Cordon's cousin was also hurt when she was hit in the back of the head.

"He just kept asking for jewelry. I think it's got something to do with my ex-boyfriend because my ex-boyfriend and I are," Cordon said before being cut off by the dispatcher asking if she needed medical help.

McCoy, who turned 30 on Thursday, is preparing to enter his fourth season with the Bills. He spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he led the NFL in yards rushing in 2013 before being traded to Buffalo in 2015.

He took to social media Tuesday to deny a wide range of allegations posted earlier in the day by a woman who appeared to be friends with Condon, accusing him of hurting his former girlfriend. McCoy has since hired prominent Atlanta criminal defense attorney Don Samuel, according to Michael LaScala, McCoy's attorney in eviction proceedings against Cordon.

Fulton County Magistrate Court records show that McCoy initiated eviction proceedings against Cordon on July 3, 2017, saying that the pair were no longer in a relationship. Court records show two attempts to serve Cordon with the document but no other action.

That evening, police responded to a report of a domestic dispute at the home, according to a police report. Cordon wasn't there when officers got there, but they spoke to McCoy, who told them he and Cordon had broken up and had been having issues.

Cordon had had been accusing him of cheating on her and had posted on social media about that and their breakup, McCoy told police. He also said Cordon had failed to return jewelry lent to them by jewelers for events despite multiple requests.

He told police he had started eviction proceedings against Cordon and was trying "to be very careful about being around her given the climate of domestic abuse in his profession." He told police he would bring Cordon's things, which were piled on the driveway, back inside.

Cordon came home while police were there and also told officers the relationship was over. She said she had nowhere else to go and would be staying at the home.

Shortly before midnight April 11, police again responded to a domestic dispute at the home. Dispatchers reported that "the callers had everything worked out, but it sounded a little heated over the phone," a police report says.

McCoy and Cordon separately told an officer they had worked everything out and the argument hadn't been physical. Cordon told the officer she had called because McCoy was moving some furniture out of the house that she wanted to keep.

Cordon called police from Virginia on June 1 to say she saw people removing things from the home through security cameras that she could monitor on her cellphone, a police report says. McCoy was also out of town.

When police arrived, they spoke to McCoy's mother who said her son was moving out and had asked her to get his stuff so he wouldn't have to deal with Cordon, the report says. She said McCoy had said Cordon could stay in the house until it sold since she had two small children, but that he wanted his things.

Police said any disputes over belongings would have to be resolved in court, and movers left with just McCoy's clothing and shoes, the report says.

McCoy's friend, Tamarcus Porter, filed eviction proceedings against Cordon on McCoy's behalf on June 6. In a court filing challenging the eviction proceedings, Cordon's attorney said Cordon and McCoy had discussed marriage over Memorial Day weekend and that McCoy gave Cordon "a substantial gift" on May 29.

A hearing on the eviction proceedings is planned for a later date.
