Mason Greenwood Released On Bail after Arrest over Rape Allegation & ‘Threats to Kill’

Mason Greenwood was released on bail today after being detained for a number of charges including rape and making death threats.

The 20-year-old Manchester United striker was arrested on Sunday and held for three nights when cops raided his residence in Bowdon, Greater Manchester.

Greenwood was suspended from Utd indefinitely after the claims were made public on social media.

The £75,000-a-week star has been released on bail, according to Greater Manchester Police.

A statement said: “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.”

As per The sun, Greenwood was arrested on suspicion of rape and GBH at first, but police said yesterday that he was also being questioned about sexual assault and threats to kill.

After the allegations were made on Sunday, police crime scene investigation vehicles were seen parked outside the footballer’s home.

At a second property, he owns nearby, security workers, said to have been provided by his club, were there and confirmed that his parents were inside.

In a statement, Man Utd said: “Manchester United reiterates its strong condemnation of violence of any kind.
