Manchester United forward, Mason Greenwood is still in custody after being arrested for alleged rape and assault towards a woman identified as Harriet Robson who is reportedly his girlfriend.

The 20-year-old has also been suspended from playing or training with the club following the allegations on Sunday January 30.

Greater Manchester Police in a statement, said it had been made aware of the situation and has launched an investigation on the situation.

“Greater Manchester Police were made aware earlier today (Sunday 30 January) of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence. An investigation was launched and following enquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He remains in custody for questioning. Enquiries are ongoing.”

In an earlier statement issued on Sunday morning, United said they were launching their own investigation before announcing Greenwood’s suspension.

The statement said: “We are aware of images and allegations circulating on social media.

“We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.”

The statement from the Premier League club was issued in response to allegations being posted within images and audio that are no longer visible on a woman’s Instagram account.

The images and allegations were reportedly visible on the woman’s Instagram on Sunday morning but have since been deleted.

A spokesperson for sportswear giant Nike, which sponsors Greenwood, said in a statement: “We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
Attempts have been made to contact Greenwood for comment.
