 England footballer, Mason Greenwood is still being questioned by police after being arrested over allegations of rape and assault.

 

The Manchester United forward, 20, remained in custody early today having been detained yesterday after disturbing pictures and audio went viral on social media alleging he attacked his 18-year-old girlfriend.


The disturbing images appeared to show the woman bloodied and bruised. In the voice recording, the footballer was heard forcing his girl to have sex with him.

 

Shortly after the messages emerged online, his club put out a statement saying it was aware of them and they were making inquiries 'to establish the full circumstances'.

 

It added: 'Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.'

 

The woman was interviewed by plain clothes officers at her family home yesterday afternoon.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester police said they had launched an investigation after being made 'aware of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence'.

 

He added: 'Following inquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He remains in custody for questioning. Inquiries are ongoing.'

 

Forensic officers also arrived at Greenwood's £2million mansion in the upmarket village of Bowdon, Cheshire, yesterday evening.
