Mason Greenwood Has Been Released On Bail

The Manchester United forward has been released pending further investigation

Mason Greenwood has been released on bail pending further investigation.

The Manchester United and England forward was arrested on Sunday (30 January) on suspicion of rape and assault.

He was further arrested yesterday (Tuesday 1 February) on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill.

Greenwood has been released on bail.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said in a statement: "A 20-year-old man arrested (on Sunday 30 January 2022) on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman has been released on bail pending further investigation." 

Greenwood is originally from Bradford and rose up through the ranks of the United academy, making his debut in March 2019. He signed a four-year deal with the club last February.

In the wake of the allegations, United confirmed the striker had been suspended and would not return to training or take part in any matches 'until further notice'.

The investigation is ongoing.

In a statement released yesterday, GMP said: "Following enquiries so far, he has since been further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill. Enquiries are ongoing and the victim continues to be offered specialist support.
