The daughter of a 60-year-old California man allegedly stabbed seven times by the son of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said she fears for her parents’ lives because the bailed-out suspect is back home next door.
Rachel Winsor, 26, said she grew up with 6-foot-7 Adam Abdul-Jabbar, 28, in San Clemente and was shocked and horrified Tuesday when her father told her Adam had gone berserk over an argument involving trash cans.
After being bailed out on Wednesday, he returned home and made a bee-line for his victim’s house.
“He came over to say he was sorry to my mom, but I can’t believe he got out so fast,” Winsor told The Post Saturday.
“What if he wants to come finish off the job?”
Abdul-Jabbar was arrested after the Tuesday evening incident in Orange County on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
Ray Winsor took himself to an area hospital with multiple injuries. He was resting at home Saturday.
Abdul-Jabbar and Rachel’s parents, Ray and Sheila, are neighbors in a cul-de-sac. Abdul-Jabbar has lived with a woman named Evelyn Calvert, a friend of his mother, since graduating from high school, Rachel said. Adam called her his adopted grandmother.
“Before that Adam used to come visit here on spring break and in the summer throughout our childhood,” Rachel said. “I known him since I was little. This was so out of the blue. I’ve never seen him like that.”
She said her dad was bothered that Adam didn’t seem to help Calvert, who is in her 80s. “She has a walker but he doesn’t even help her with groceries,” Winsor said. “It just really was upsetting for my dad to see that. He’s a really traditional guy.”
Reached by phone, Sheila Winsor said her husband was in pain all night. A nurse arrived during her call with The Post to administer pain medication. Mrs. Winsor said she has not opened the door to Abdul-Jabbar but “his car is right next door across the cul-de-sac.”
“My husband is a trouper but he’s really sore,” she said.
Rachel Winsor said Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was sighted briefly after the alleged stabbing incident but did not stay long or visit her parents.
“He’s never stepped up,” Winsor said, adding that she meant Abdul-Jabbar never seemed to have much of a role in Adam’s life. “He just turns a blind eye.”
She said Adam had grown up near Atlanta with his mother and his mother’s partner but did not get along very well with them and moved back with Calvert permanently after high school after spending time with her as a child.
Rachel Winsor said her dad was a manager at a local car repair shop and “a great guy loved by everyone.”
Rachel says her father told her he was stabbed in the back of the head and the neck.
