Initially detained in January of this year on charges of rape and assaulting a woman, Greenwood was later taken into custody on charges of sexual assault and making threats to kill.
Greater Manchester Police “became aware of online social media photographs and videos made by a lady claiming episodes of physical assault,” which led to the arrest of Mason Greenwood on Sunday.
The suspect, who is only 21 years old, was taken into custody once again on Tuesday on charges of sexual assault and making threats to kill.
In a further statement, Manchester United added the following in response to the news of additional charges: “Once again, Manchester United has issued a robust statement condemning any and all forms of violence.
In accordance with the information that was previously shared, Mason Greenwood will not work out with or play for the club until further notice.”
As a result of the claims, Nike severed their partnership with England forward.
The Greater Manchester Police have been given additional time to question Greenwood, while Manchester United has stated that the striker will not be training with or playing for the club until further notice.
