On Thursday, former University of Miami star Kellen Winslow II was arrested, and faces nine criminal charges. They included kidnapping with intent to commit rape, forcible rape, and burglary.

The charges came a week after Winslow had been arrested for breaking into a mobile home. He was released on $50,000 bond.

Now, we have more details on the latest Winslow arrest. They are somehow even more grisly than originally reported.

The San Diego Union-Tribuneobtained the criminal complaint that outlined the charges made against Winslow. According to the complaint, he allegedly raped two women, ages 54 and 59.

He also faces two charges of "burglary with intent to rape" involving two elderly women, ages 71 and 86. Both charges stem from incidents that occurred this month.

More, from the Union-Tribune report:

Winslow II was arrested, and his house was searched, on Thursday. He remains jailed with no bail.

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.

Winslow II is set to appear in court this afternoon for his arraignment. If convicted on these charges, he could face life in prison.
