Los Angeles police have arrested a Saudi Arabian prince who is suspected of attempting to force a domestic worker to perform oral sex on him in a Beverly Hills mansion.

The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, was freed on $300,000 bail Thursday afternoon after spending the night in jail, the LA Times reported.

Officers were called to the gated hillside community in the Beverly Glen area on Wednesday after a report of a domestic disturbance there.


A neighbor, Tennyson Collins, reportedly saw a bleeding and screaming woman trying to scale the 8-foot-high wall surrounding the property when he drove home from work at 1:30 in the afternoon on Wednesday.

Officers reportedly followed Collins onto the property.

Police said they interviewed residents inside the home that was being rented by Al-Saud and escorted 20 people — mostly staff — out of the house.

LAPD Captain Tina Nieto told the Times that after checking with its consul liaison division, police determined Al-Saud did not have diplomatic immunity in this case.

Al-Saud is set to appear in court on October 19.

The Saudi Arabian embassy has not commented on the case.
