London, Aug. 26 (ANI): West Ham soccer star Calum Davenport will be quizzed by cops over an alleged race row before he was stabbed in both legs.

The Sun quoted police sources as saying the inquiry initially focused on the stabbing of the 26-year-old West Ham defender, but now they are working backwards after it turned out that Davenport's sister Cara's boyfriend was of mixed race.

Worrell Whitehurst, the mixed race lover of Cara, has appeared in court charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Davenport went to 28-year-old Cara's Bedford home early on Saturday after a night out.

Magistrates heard he allegedly told her he disapproved of her having a baby fathered by Whitehurst, 25.

Cops were called after Whitehurst arrived but both men left.

Hours later Davenport was found bleeding from a leg artery outside his mum Kim Stupple's house in nearby Kempston. She was also wounded.

Cops will wait until Davenport is discharged from a hospital's intensive care unit before talking to him about the race row.

He had an emergency op after losing 50 per cent of his blood. His career is in the balance and he may have a leg amputated. (ANI)
