After conducting interviews, the police officers arrested Majed Abulaziz Al-Saud, a 28-year-old Saudi prince, for allegedly trying to force at least one unidentified woman to perform oral sex against her will. What’s more, “four more victims allege the same crimes committed—including criminal threats [by Al-Saud],” an LAPD police spokesman told The Daily Beast, noting that all the alleged victims and witnesses who were interviewed said the alleged attacks occurred on the same day.
Meanwhile, a neighbor told The Los Angeles Times that upon returning home, he witnessed a bloodied woman (believed to work at the house as a caretaker) shimmying across an 8-foot wall and screaming for help.
Once arrested, the prince was held and then released on bail after paying $300,000. He’s due to appear before a judge on Oct. 19.
The cops noted that the prince does not have the power to invoke diplomatic immunity but say they were still working with a consul liaison and the State Department to review his status.
