The Manchester United striker has been sent home on bail, the Greater Manchester Police force have confirmed. A short statement on Wednesday morning via GMP outlined that Greenwood has returned home after several days in police custody.
The statement read: ‘A 20-year-old man arrested (on Sunday 30 January 2022) on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman has been released on bail pending further investigation.’
Earlier in the week allegations had been made against Greenwood by a woman, who released a series of images and recordings on social media in which Greenwood was alleged to have caused her harm.
GMP quickly intervened and Greenwood was taken in for questioning, after being arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.
It was later confirmed thaty Greenwood had been further arrested on ‘suspicion of assault and threats to kill.’
Manchester United have suspended the youngster and confirmed he will be taking no part in training or match day activities until all investigations have been completed.
A statement from the club read: “We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.”
Greenwood has also had his sponsorship deal with USA sports giants Nike suspended as a result of the ongoing police investigation.
