The details are out in the re-arrest Thursday of former Hurricanes and Bucs TE Kellen Winslow II in San Diego, CA. And, they are more disturbing and horrifying with the more we learn.

The San Diego Union Tribune detailed what they learned from the criminal complaint that authorities have filed against Winslow:

The nauseating reality is that Winslow is alleged to have raped separate middle aged women in March and again, in May. Prosecutors detailed Friday afternoon in court that the women were both allegedly picked up as hitchhikers or transients by Winslow and allegedly raped. They further detailed that Winslow threatened to kill both women, if they went to the police.

And now, prosecutors believe Winslow apparently was attempting to rape a 71 year old and an 86 year old in June at the Park Encinitas Mobile Home Park.

Further from the complaint, that’s what prosecutors believe Winslow was attempting to do on June 7th, when a neighbor in the mobile home park spotted him that afternoon going into a mobile home and confronted him. Winslow left in a black SUV, but was found by authorities a short time later, and arrested after a traffic stop.

At that time he was only charged with one count of burglary of the residence, which carried a $50,000 bond, and he was released.

We wrote yesterday extensively about Winslow’s successful college career at Miami and his nine year pro career, which included three seasons with the Bucs.

Winslow grew up in San Diego, where his father, Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, was a Chargers star. He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2013.

Winslow appeared in San Diego court later on Friday in shackles on the slew of new felony charges, which include kidnapping, rape, and sodomy. Not surprisingly, he was denied bond on the new charges:

Ojeda, who was in courtroom also relays that members of Winslow’s family, including his father were at the arraignment Friday afternoon.

TMZ Sports is also reporting from the courtroom that San Diego that prosecutors told the judge Friday that Winslow had been under surveillance for sometime by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office. And that Winslow was apparently trying to sell his vehicle that he allegedly used to commit the crimes.
