California(DC): Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud has been arrested in California for allegedly forcing a woman to perform oral sex on him in his mansion in Beverly Hills. The incident came to light after the prince’s neighbour claimed he saw a bleeding woman trying to escape the Prince’s estate whilst screaming in pain for help.
The eyewitness who is the neighbour of the prince told the LA Times that he saw a bleeding woman desperately trying to climb the 8-foot-high walls of the Prince’s mansion.
While diplomats and royals enjoy immunity in the United State, the LA police said that the prince does not have immunity in this case. The twenty-nine-year-old was arrested on Wednesday but was soon released on $300,000 bond the very next day.
Los Angeles police interrogated Al-Saud’s household and his staff and close to twenty people were escorted out of the Beverly Hills estate for questioning.
During the course of their investigation, several other women alleged that Al-Saud has sexually assaulted them. The police is now probing the new charges that have surfaced against the prince.
The other alleged sexual attacks took place in Al-Saud’s 2500 block of Wallingford Drive in Beverly Glen. The prince was detained on suspicion of false imprisonment and sexual assault. He is scheduled to appear in court October 19.
