"If you scream, I'll kill you": Homeless woman describes in chilling details how Former NFL star Kellen Winslow II raped her
Kellen Winslow II, the retired NFL tight end facing multiple rape and kidnapping charges, was arraigned Thursday for forcibly raping an unconscious 17-year-old female.
A homeless woman, 58, alleged how former NFL star Kellen Winslow II invited her for coffee, after which he drove her to a secluded road, where he reportedly choked her, sodomized her, and threatened to kill her if she spoke about it to anyone.
The woman described the chilling details of her ordeal during a court hearing and told Winslow's attorneys to correct their statement when they asked her about him choking her during intercourse. To which she replied "It wasn’t intercourse. It was rape. You need to use your words correctly, sir."
According to USA Today, the woman, referred to as Jane Doe 2, testified inside the North County Division of the San Diego Superior Court during a pretrial hearing on July 12.
The ex-football star is accused of raping and kidnapping not one, but two homeless women.
Authorities brought forth additional charges against Winslow last month after he was accused of raping a 17-year-old girl in 2003.
Winslow, who was 19 at the time, pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Winslow's attorneys claim that their client had paid the two homeless women for sex and also said the sexual encounter with the aforementioned 17-year-old was consensual.
However, both women turned down his offer of $50 each for sex, according to their testimony in court.
Authorities were informed about the sex-for-money offer by Jane Doe 2 just before Winslow's pre-trial.
Upon being asked about the same, she replied, "I mean, what does that have to do with rape, sir? I’m the victim."
But she says that she continued to see Winslow periodically after meeting eight months ago.
The first time the pair met, she was allegedly walking to a homeless shelter near Winslow's residence in the town of Encinitas.
He pulled over his black Hummer after spotting her and allegedly offered her a ride, which she openly accepted. She described her first impression of him as "very friendly, very nice."
However, she testified that things took an ugly turn when he offered her money for sex.
The former football star, however, tried to make it up to her by asking if she needed anything and even offered her money for food.
"He seemed like a friendly person," she testified.
On May 13 of this year, Winslow pulled up to a transit station and asked Jane Doe 2 for a ride in his Hummer to get coffee, to which she agreed.
"At that time, I felt very safe with him," she testified.
But she started growing suspicious as the ride progressed.
"I just kept asking him questions, and it was like he didn’t want to answer," she said.
Winslow suddenly made a U-turn and pulled his vehicle over, leaving the woman considerably scared.
"I said, 'No, please don’t do this,' and I said it about four times," she testified.
Winslow apparently wouldn't take no for an answer, proceeding to pull her out of the car and rape her.
During the assault, the woman allegedly began to scream, prompting Winslow to threaten to kill her if she continued, she said.
"If you scream, I’ll kill you," he allegedly said.
Just eleven days after the incident, the former football star is accused of exposing his private parts to a 55-year-old woman who was gardening.
Currently, Winslow has been charged with three misdemeanors, two for trespassing and one for exposing himself.
