Mason Greenwood, a soccer player for Manchester United, was charged on Saturday with attempted rape, controlling behavior, and assault, according to British prosecutors.
The 21-year-old was detained in January after a lady shared social media photographs and videos detailing instances of physical abuse.
“The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Mason Greenwood, 21, with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” prosecutor Janet Potter said in a statement.
“All three counts relate to the same complainant.”
Greenwood is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Monday.
“Greater Manchester Police has charged and remanded a 21-year-old man with controlling and coercive behaviour, attempted rape and Section 47 assault of a woman,” a local police statement said.
At no point have Greenwood or his aides responded to the accusations leveled against him.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has a right to a fair trial,” Potter added.
He remains suspended by his club, who released a statement later on Saturday.
“Manchester United notes that criminal charges have been brought against Mason Greenwood by the Crown Prosecution Service. He remains suspended by the club, pending the outcome of the judicial process,” the statement read.
