Kellen Winslow Jr. was arrested and charged with multiple felonies yesterday and now we know why.
The ex-NFL star allegedly raped at least 2 women in their 50s — and tried to rape at least two more, including an 86-year-old woman.
The charges include two counts of forcible rape, one count of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible oral copulation. Other charges include kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, residential burglary and indecent exposure.
Among the charges in the complaint obtained by the Union-Tribune:
Kidnap, rape and forced oral copulation of a 54-year-old woman in March;
Kidnap, rape and sodomy of a 59-year-old woman in May;
Indecent exposure in May;
Burglary with the intent to rape a 71-year-old woman in June;
Burglary with the intent to rape an 86-year-old woman also in June.
This is his second arrest this month. Last week, he was briefly jailed on suspicion of burglary. His new arrest came on the same day he was to appear in a Vista courtroom for arraignment in the burglary case.
Winslow II, 34, was initially taken into custody June 7 after deputies responded to reports of a possible burglary in the Park Encinitas Mobile Home Park on El Camino Real near La Entrada.
Around 2:40 p.m. that day, a resident reported seeing a stranger walk into a neighboring residence. The neighbor confronted the intruder, who subsequently got into a black SUV and left, sheriff’s officials said.
Deputies stopped and arrested Winslow II, and booked him into custody on one count of burglary. He soon posted $50,000 bond and was released from Vista jail.
His publicist said the arrest was the result of an over-reaction from a neighbor who saw him at the residence of a couple that was not home.
The day after the arrest last week, the publicist supplied a statement from another of Winslow’s defense attorneys, Colorado-based Harvey A. Steinberg, who said Winslow II “emphatically denies committing any burglary.”
“He would have no need to burglarize or steal anything from anyone at a trailer park,” Steinberg said, adding that Winslow II “looks forward to being vindicated” in court.
On Thursday, Brian Watkins, the attorney who said he was representing Winslow in the burglary case, declined comment when reached by phone.
As previously reported, if convicted on all charges Kellen faces life in prison.
