Mason Greenwood’s Cheshire home has been visited by police authorities.
The photographs were taken outside the Manchester United footballer’s home following a police announcement regarding the 20-year-arrest old’s on suspicion of rape and assault.
On Sunday morning, the Red Devils forward were accused of assaulting a woman in a series of horrific social media messages.
“Greater Manchester Police was made aware earlier today (Sunday 30 January) of online social media photographs and videos posted by a woman describing incidents of physical assault,” said a police statement.
“An inquiry was initiated, and we can report that a guy in his twenties has now been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.”
“Inquiries are still ongoing.”
According to the woman, the United player left her with a bleeding face and bruises all over her body.
On Sunday, the police issued the following statement: “The Greater Manchester Police Department is aware of photographs and videos that are circulating on social media. Inquiries are being conducted to determine the full scope of the situation.”
Meanwhile, on Sunday afternoon, United issued their own statement, confirming that the forward had been suspended.
“Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches till further notice,” the Red Devils declared.
Greenwood has not been selected by England manager Gareth Southgate since being sent from Iceland in disgrace in September 2020, when he and Phil Foden violated Covid’s policy by asking two women back to the hotel in Reykjavik.
Greenwood had urged Southgate not to be considered for international selection until the next set of games in March, it was revealed in the autumn.
Greenwood, 20, made his United debut in 2019 and has since scored 35 goals in 129 appearances to establish himself as one of Europe’s most promising young players.
