Saudi Prince Arrested For Attempted Forced Oral Copulation In Beverly HillsThis almost sounds like DSK all over again…
Police were called to a Beverly Hills compound within a gated community on Wallingford Drive Wednesday after a neighbor reported seeing a bleeding woman scream for help as she tried to scale an 8-foot-high wall surrounding a property Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud has been renting.
According to LA Times reports:
Crazy! A bleeding woman??? What the hell did he do?According to Los Angeles police, Al-Saud was arrested after being accused of trying to force a worker to perform a sex act on him.
Police were called after a caretaker at the home reported a disturbance, officials said. After officers interviewed people inside, a 28-year-old man identified as Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud was arrested on suspicion of forced oral copulation of an adult.
He was booked and freed on $300,000 bail Thursday afternoon, jail records show. He could not immediately be reached for comment.
Police determined Al-Saud does not have immunity in this case, Captain Tina Nieto said.
Some foreign royalty do have diplomatic immunity, but it depends on the dignitary’s status in his home country’s government and the level of the offense he commits in the U.S., she said.
Jail records show Al-Saud is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 19.
Attempts to reach the U.S. State Department and the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Los Angeles were not successful Thursday afternoon.
We bet the neighbors are even less thrilled now. What is the punishment for rape in Saudi Arabia?Neighbor Tennyson Collins drove home from work after 1:30 p.m., police followed his car through the gates and onto the property, which he described as a compound. The website Zillow valued the 22,000-square-foot property at $37 million.
Officers escorted some 20 people out of the house, many of them staff, Collins said.
Collins said various foreign nationals have been renting out the property for weeks at a time over the last year but that the biggest incident up to Wednesday had just been a raucous party or two. One person who rented out the home stationed armed guards at the gates, he said.
“Obviously neighbors aren’t happy about it, but it is what it is,” Collins said of the international visitors.
