Man convicted of sexually assaulting mother of his children

By Cathy Locke

A jury has convicted a Sacramento man with a history of domestic violence of sexually assaulting and beating the mother of his children.

District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Alan McCoy, 43, was convicted of rape, forcible oral copulation, burglary, corporal injury on the mother of his children, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and violation of a restraining order.

McCoy and the victim had four children together, but were never married, according to a District Attorney's Office news release. Officials said McCoy abused the victim over many years. He was convicted of felony domestic violence for punching the victim in the face in front of two of his daughters, and in 2008, he was convicted again for violating a protective order.

In March 2010, McCoy choked the victim after the couple had an argument. The woman called police, and McCoy fled, but he returned to the apartment through a bedroom window after the police left.

Officials said McCoy strangled the victim with his hands, smashed her on the head with a tequila bottle and hit her in the head and knees with a hammer. He then sexually assaulted her multiple times.

The victim was able to report the assault the next morning when she received medical care. Officials said McCoy insisted on accompanying her, and he was arrested at a coffee shop, which had a clear view of the site where the woman was being treated.

McCoy is to be sentenced Feb. 10.
