A car carrying Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood has been pictured leaving prison grounds in Wales after he was granted bail at an earlier Court hearing.
The 21-year-old English international, who was not present for the bail application hearing in Manchester on Wednesday morning (October 19), has been charged attempted rape; engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour; and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Manchester Magistrates’ Court previously heard he is charged with attempted rape relating to an alleged incident on October 22, 2021; engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour between November 1, 2018 and October 15, 2022, namely accessed and monitored social media accounts, stopped and altered the way the complainant socialised, and making threatening and derogatory comments towards a female; and assault occasioning actual bodily harm, with a period between December 1 2021 and December 31 2021 specified.
Today’s hearing (Wednesday) was held in private at Minshull Street Crown Court.
Judge John Potter granted Mr Greenwood bail with conditions not to contact any witnesses in the case including the complainant, and to reside at a specified address in Trafford.
The case was adjourned to November 21 to be heard at Minshull Street Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.
Mr Greenwood, of Trafford, was bailed until the next hearing.
A car carrying Mr Greenwood was later pictured leaving HMP Berwyn in Wrexham, Wales. The black Audi pulled out of the jail grounds before heading off.
