Mason Greenwood Arrested On Suspicion Of Rape & Assault

Mason Greenwood has been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault following allegations made by a woman on social media.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed on Sunday that they had been made aware of “online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.”

They then confirmed that a man in his 20s remains had been arrested and remains in custody for questioning, and that enquiries are ongoing.

It comes after United confirmed that Greenwood ‘would not return to train or play any matches until further notice’, effectively suspending him from the club.

The allegations were posted on social media platform Instagram and included pictures, video and an audio note that claimed to be a conversation held between the woman and Greenwood. They have since been removed.

Nike, who sponsor Greenwood, said in a statement of their own:

“We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
