Man Utd forward Mason Greenwood has been further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault as well as threats to kill. He was detained over the weekend after a woman posted pictures and videos of incidents on social media. The allegations included photographs, video, and a voice note that claimed to be between the woman and Greenwood. The club immediately suspended him from training with the club.
“Detectives have been granted further additional time to speak to a man in his 20s who was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault of a woman,” a statement by the Greater Manchester Police said after the arrest of Man Utd forward Mason Greenwood. “The suspect was detained in custody on Sunday (January 30) afternoon after we became aware of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence. He continues to be questioned after magistrates authorized an extension until tomorrow (Wednesday 2 February). 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,” the statement added. “We remind people to avoid any commentary or sharing of images that could compromise the victim’s right to lifelong anonymity, or risk prejudicing a live investigation with active proceedings.”
“Mason Greenwood has been removed from active squads in FIFA 22 and has also been suspended from appearing in FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs and Ultimate Draft,” a statement by Electonic Arts said.
