Mason Greenwood update: Man United player questioned on suspicion of threats to kill

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is a long way from being able to clear his name from serious allegations against him. Following his arrest on Sunday for suspicion of rape and assault, he has reportedly been kept in police custody until Tuesday and possibly for even longer. He is now being questioned on further suspicion of making threats to kill.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed on Sunday that the 20-year-old footballer was taken into custody after authorities became “aware of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.”

The said posts were made by Harriet Robson, who is believed to be Greenwood’s girlfriend. She took to social media to share photos of injuries she allegedly received at the hands of the England international.

Greenwood will be held in custody at least until Wednesday according to a court order. No charges have formally been made until now, and depending on the results of the questioning, he may find himself either being released or facing very serious charges.

“Following enquiries so far, he has since been further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill,” Greater Manchester Police said in its latest statement.
