Mason greenwood remanded
Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood has been remanded into custody after appearing in court charged with attempted rape.
The 21-year-old was also charged with assault and repeatedly engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour.
He was arrested in January amid allegations surrounding images and videos that emerged online.
The forward, from Bowdon, Greater Manchester, spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.
Proceedings at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court were then adjourned by District Judge Mark Hadfield, who later made the decision to remand Mr Greenwood in custody.
His next court appearance was scheduled for 21 November at Manchester Crown Court.
Mr Greenwood had been on bail since January, but was re-arrested in Trafford on Saturday for an alleged breach of the conditions.
Wearing a grey hooded Nike jumper and grey jogging bottoms, he was flanked by two officers.
His family sat in a full public gallery in the small courtroom, along with members of the press.
The attempted rape is alleged to have taken place in October 2021.
Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood has been arrested again for breaching his bail conditions, according to The Sun.
The United player has been suspended from action by the club after he was arrested by Greater Manchester Police in January on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, rape and making threats to kill.
After spending three nights in prison he was released on bail and has been awaiting a decision on whether he will be charged for the incident involving his former girlfriend.
The Sun reports that his new arrest is due to an allegation he has contacted the victim, which is in breach of the conditions of his bail.
“Greenwood is being quizzed by cops after officers swooped on his £15,000-a-month mansion this morning,” the outlet reports.
“A GMP spokesman said: ‘Greater Manchester Police are aware of an allegation regarding a 21-year-old man breaching his bail conditions and an arrest has been made on Saturday 15 October 2022…Enquiries are ongoing at this time.’”
