16th June 2022

MASON GREENWOOD will face a court bail hearing next week as an investigation continues following his arrest.

The Manchester United star will have his bail application heard in closed court next week after he was arrested on suspicion of raping and assaulting a woman.

An investigation into the allegations remains ongoing and Greater Manchester Police have applied to the courts to extend his bail.

The hearing will take place next Thursday June 23 at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court.

But the press and public won’t be allowed to attend – and Greenwood, 20, is not expected to be there.

Greenwood was arrested in January after police received a report about images and videos posted online from a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.

The England striker was initially held on suspicion of rape and assault but was then rearrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill.

The young star spent three nights in police custody before he was bailed.

In April, cops said they were continuing to investigate the allegations and would seek to have Greenwood’s bail extended but a court hearing wouldn’t take place until mid-June.

A Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court court official confirmed today that the hearing will take place next Thursday.
