Mason Greenwood’s accuser breaks her silence over rape and GBH allegations

Mason Greenwood’s accuser breaks her silence over the rape and GBH allegations aimed at the Manchester United footballer.

Alleged rape victim Harriet Robson shares her first post and in it, thanks everyone for their “support” after Greenwood, 20, was released on bail.

The 18 year old student revealed that the past week has been “difficult” for her and she will not be making any more statements pending the police investigation.

Greenwood was first arrested on suspicion of rape and GBH on Sunday, before spending three nights being questioned by police after he was re-arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill.

His alleged victim has since posted on Instagram: “I’m grateful to everyone that has sent messages of support and encouragement – thank you.

“The last few days have been very difficult and I’m taking a break from social media while the police make their investigations.”

Greenwood was released on bail pending further investigation on Wednesday, but he has not been seen since, though reports suggest he has toughened up security at his luxury mansion in Bowdon, Greater Manchester.

An expert also arrived to install a £350 home security system, which can record up to eight CCTV cameras.

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

Greenwood was suspended indefinitely from the Red Devils hours after the allegations surfaced on social media.

Manager Ralf Rangnick spoke on his striker’s arrest Thursday at a press conference ahead of Friday’s FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough.

He suggested players have been discussing the incident when asked if it had been “distracting”.

The German added: “We had a good normal week of training with five training sessions including today’s training, obviously it was a topic within the team but they’re human beings and Mason was part of the group before we had our break.

“It was a good week of training, we could train under normal circumstances and we are looking forward to the game tomorrow.”

Jesse Lingard had been rumoured to be departing in the January transfer window after warming the bench for the majority of the season.

However Rangnick confirmed Greenwood’s arrest was one of the factors in J Lingz staying at the club.

It comes as Greenwood’s teammates returned to training after the winter break, several of his teammates have also unfollowed Greenwood on social media after the images came to light.

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 £75,000-a-week Greenwood will still receive his wages while on suspension.

England manager Gareth Southgate has ruled out even considering him for selection until all legal proceedings are over, while Man Utd have also reiterated that Greenwood will not play for the club or train until further notice.

All his merchandise has been dropped from the official club site in the wake of the allegations and if supporters wanting to exchange shirts bearing his name can now do so for free.

Rape & Sexual Assault Abroad – Returning to the UK

Support for British Nationals Abroad

Rape and sexual assault can happen to women and men of all ages and backgrounds. While most visits abroad are trouble-free, we are becoming more aware of people being sexually assaulted whilst they are overseas.  Sexual assault is a very traumatic experience whenever and wherever it happens, but the trauma can be made even more difficult to deal with when it happens abroad.  We will be as helpful as we can to anyone who tells us they have had sex against their wishes or been attacked by someone wanting sex.

Personal Safety Advice Abroad

When travelling abroad, most people are keen to relax and unwind. Travellers, tourists and foreign businessmen and women can be prime targets for criminals, however. In order to minimise stress on your holiday or trip, take time to plan your personal safety strategy in advance. From keeping your valuables safe to avoiding violence, a little forethought may save you from becoming a victim of crime.
