Adam Abdul-Jabbar’s Victim Transported To Hospital
The victim, Ray Winsor, transported himself to a hospital with multiple injuries that were not life-threatening, the sheriff’s spokesperson said.
Winsor told Eyewitness News that he’s lucky to be alive after being stabbed seven times, the knife even puncturing his head. Residents in the area described Abdul-Jabbar as a “good kid” and were shocked by the alleged violence.
Adam Abdul-Jabbar Dispute Details
Winsor says the confrontation started over trash cans, an ongoing issue between the two for last couple of years.
“I sort of got on him because the lady who takes care of him is 83-year-old, he doesn’t do anything for her and it just bums me out, she’s in a walker taking her trash cans down,” he said.
Winsor says Abdul-Jabbar went into his home but then came back out, telling him that he was going to stick a knife through his teeth, a statement that Winsor though was a joke “because of the relationship we’ve had for years”.
After he started to walk away, Winsor thought he felt punching, but then noticed he had been stabbed.
“One punch and it knocked off his glasses, I think it knocked the knife out of his hand, I’m not sure because it was dark out there,” he said.
