Man Utd Forward Greenwood Remains on Bail over Rape & Assault Allegations as Police Release New Statement
The 20-year-old is still being investigated by the authorities despite being suspended by his club. Mason Greenwood, a forward for Manchester United, had his bail extended after being charged with rape and assault. The request for an extension of the 20-year-bail old’s was made public in April. Following his detention on January 30, Greenwood is still being investigated by police for alleged sexual assault and death threats.
The latest update from a Greater Manchester Police spokesperson is: “Following a hearing yesterday (Thursday 23 June 2022), a 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill on Sunday 30 January 2022 remains on bail.
“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, who spent three nights in police custody following his arrest, has been suspended indefinitely by his Premier League employers.
United said in their last update back in April: “There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status. “We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January. This was in order to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app, such as team predictions. “However, his profile was never removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, albeit not currently part of the squad, while the legal process unfolds.”
As well as being suspended at Old Trafford, Greenwood has also seen Nike cancel all commercial partnerships with him.
