BEVERLY GLEN (CBSLA.com) — A Saudi prince accused of a sex-crime was arrested Wednesday at his compound in Beverly Glen, authorities said.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud was arrested in the 2500 block of Wallingford Drive about 3 p.m. on Sept. 23 after being accused of trying to force a worker to perform a sex act on him.
Tennyson Collins, a neighbor of the 28-year-old man, told the Los Angeles Times that “… a resident reported seeing a bleeding woman scream for help as she tried to scale the property’s eight-foot-high wall Wednesday afternoon.”
Collins also told the Times that foreign nationals have been renting the property for weeks at a time.
A woman who claims to be friends with Al-Saud wouldn’t go on camera, but insisted the incident didn’t happen, adding that the prince wouldn’t do something like that.
Al-Saud was arrested on suspicion of forced oral copulation with an adult, police said. His bail had been set at $300,000. He was released from jail earlier Thursday after posting it. Al-Saud is expected to be in court Oct. 19.
