Mason Greenwood toughens security at mansion after being bailed over rape & ‘threat to kill’ arrest

MASON Greenwood has beefed up security at his luxury mansion after being bailed following his rape arrest.

The Man Utd striker, 20, spent three nights being quizzed by police on suspicion of rape, GBH, sexual assault and threats to kill.

Greenwood appears to have toughened security at the mansion in Bowdon, Greater Manchester, but it is not known where he currently is.

Two security guards were seen standing watch outside the home and an expert was also pictured arriving to install a £350 home security system.

The Hikvision system can connect to eight different cameras using 4K resolution.

Greenwood was initially held on suspicion of rape and GBH but police confirmed yesterday he was also being quizzed for sexual assault and threats to kill.

He was suspended indefinitely from Utd hours after the allegations surfaced on social media.

A police statement said: “A 20-year-old man arrested (on Sunday 30 January 2022) on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman has been released on bail pending further investigation.”

The £75,000-a-week footballer was taken into custody on Sunday after police swooped on his home.

Security staff, thought to have been provided by Utd, were present at a second home he owns nearby and they confirmed that his parents were inside.

In a statement, Man Utd said: “Manchester United reiterates its strong condemnation of violence of any kind.

“As previously communicated, Mason Greenwood will not train with, or play for, the club until further notice.”

A source confirmed Greenwood will still receive his wages while on suspension.

But his sponsor Nike have said they were “deeply concerned” and have suspended his deal.

All merchandise bearing the No11’s name has also been dropped from the official Utd site in the wake of the allegations and teammates have unfollowed him on Instagram.

Fans wanting to exchange shirts bearing his name can now do so for free.

Greenwood’s promising domestic and international career is now in jeopardy after his arrest.

The rising star has impressed on the pitch this season – scoring five goals in the Premier League and one in the Champions League so far.

He joined the team aged just six and rose through the ranks to land himself a regular spot on the first team.

In 2019, he became the youngest footballer to play for Utd in the Champions League when he took the pitch aged 17.

Greenwood has made 129 appearances in total for the Red Devils and netted 35 goals.

In 2020, England manager Gareth Southgate gave the 20-year-old his first cap when Greenwood came off the bench in a 1-0 win against Iceland.
