Mason Greenwood: Prosecutors drop attempted rape case
He was due to stand trial in November.
Mason Greenwood has had all charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against him dropped. The Manchester United striker, 21, was first arrested in January last year after police swooped on his mansion.
Greenwood was due to stand trial in November on charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. But Greater Manchester Police today confirmed the Crown Prosecution Service has dropped all charges against him.
Chief Superintendent Michaela Kerr, GMP’s Head of Public Protection, said: "The investigation team has remained in regular contact with the legal team, providing any updates of note, and so understand the rationale for the discontinuation of proceedings at this stage, and that this decision has not been taken lightly.
