Mason Greenwood arrested for 'breaching bail conditions'

Mason Greenwood arrested for 'breaching bail conditions'

Greater Manchester Police have released a statement.

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has been arrested by police on suspicion of breaching his bail conditions.

The 21-year-old was initially arrested in January on suspicion of rape and assault after images and videos were posted online. He was further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and making threats to kill the following month.

Greenwood was further arrested at his home in Greater Manchester on Saturday morning.

In a statement which did not confirm the name of the arrest, but confirmed an address, Greater Manchester Police said: Greater Manchester Police are aware of an allegation regarding a 21-year-old man breaching his bail conditions and an arrest has been made on Saturday 15 October 2022.

"Enquiries are ongoing at this time."

Greenwood's initial bail was set to expire in April, but it was extended in June following a court hearing.

A spokesman later confirmed no further updates would be provided until the suspect was charged or released with no action taken.

Greenwood was dropped by sponsor Nike after his arrest, while video game publisher EA Sports removed him from FIFA 22. He was not included in the recent release of FIFA 23.

Greenwood made his United debut in 2019 after graduating from the club's academy. He made his first and only appearance for the England national team a year later.

In total, Greenwood has made 129 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 35 goals. He signed a new four-year contract in 2021 with an option to extend it for a further year.

His last appearance for United came in a 1-0 victory over West Ham United on January 22.
