A hearing was held in court on Thursday over the 20-year-old's bail position where Greater Manchester Police (GMP) confirmed he will remain on bail.

It said: "Following a hearing yesterday (Thursday 23 June 2022), a 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of rape, assault and making threats to kill on Sunday 30 January 2022 remains on bail.

"As the outcome of bail reviews does not impact the progression of investigations, Greater Manchester Police will not be providing any further updates in relation to this case until the suspect is charged or released facing no further action."

Greenwood's bail was initially due to expire on April 30 but GMP made an application to extend the deadline to the court. Currently no new dates have been announced for any further hearings.
