Shirtless Kellen Winslow Jr. Told Woman He Was Looking For His Red Dog Named Clifford Before Arrest
The story surrounding Kellen Winslow Jr. and how he was arrested keeps getting stranger and stranger by the day. Before the news of his alleged rapes came about, a weird confrontation just days before would be the catalyst to breaking the case wide open.
An eagle-eyed neighbor spotted the former NFL player emerging from her 86-year-old neighbor’s mobile home with no shirt on and she quickly found out he had no reason to be there.
“ ‘I’m just looking for my dog,’ ” she recalled him saying.
“I go, ‘What dog?’ and he said, ‘A red dog, Clifford.’ And I went, ‘There’s no dog here.’ ”
Winslow would hop back into his Black SUV, but the neighbor called the cops, who soon arrested him near the trailer park on a burglary charge. Once the highest-paid tight end in the league and the son of San Diego Chargers Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr., the incident would be brushed off by his team, who stated he was in the area looking for available homes.
That turned out to be a critical clue that led towards his arrest yet again the following week after he was charged in a string of sexual attacks from March to May 2018.
Those charges included:
- Two counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape
- Two counts of forcible rape
- One count of forcible sodomy
- One count of forcible oral copulation
- One count of indecent exposure
- One count of residential burglary
There are even more disturbing details regarding some of the cases:
“In two of the cases, police say, Winslow allegedly found his victims as they hitchhiked.
He drove the women to remote locations, where he raped them, according to police.
The first victim, age 54, was attacked on March 17.
Winslow Jr. “told her if she screamed, he would murder her,” San Diego County Deputy District Attorney Dan Owens told the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Another victim, 59, was sodomized, authorities said.
In a third incident, Winslow is accused of exposing himself to a 55-year-old woman gardening in her front yard. He was charged with burglary with intent to rape of both a 71-year-old woman and the 86-year-old in the Encinitas trailer park.”
If convicted, he could face life in prison.
