Rape & Assault: Police continues probe, extend bail for Manchester United’s Greenwood



Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have extended bail for Manchester United striker, Mason Greenwood over alleged rape and assault.


The England international was arrested in January after images and videos were posted online of him assaulting a young lady.


He was also later spent three nights in cells at a Greater Manchester police station after being quizzed on suspicion of threats to kill.


The 20-year-old was released on conditional bail. This was first extended until mid-June and has now been extended.


A GMP spokesperson stated, “As the outcome of bail reviews does not impact the progression of investigations, Greater Manchester Police will not be providing any further updates in relation to this case until the suspect is charged or released facing no further action.”


Greenwood remains suspended by the Old Trafford club as police investigation continues.


Police arrested Greenwood on 30 January after a woman reported physical violence and sexual threats on social media.
