SAN DIEGO — Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. — already accused in a string of violent assaults on several women in the North County — will also be charged with raping a teenage girl in 2003, a Deputy District Attorney announced.

Winslow was arraigned Thursday on charges of forcible rape and rape of an unconscious 17-year-old minor and will have a preliminary hearing on the new accusations in August.

Deputy DA Dan Owens said outside the courtroom that the alleged crime occurred in San Diego County. Winslow was 19 at the time of the alleged assault.

News of the additional charge came on the same day a judge ordered Winslow to stand trial in the case alleging he kidnapped, threatened and raped women in Encinitas. In those cases, prosecutors say Winslow often targeted older women.

Winslow’s bail remains at $2 million.
