Saudi Prince on Bail in Sex-Crime Arrest

A Saudi prince was released on bail Thursday after he was arrested for allegedly trying to force a worker to perform a sex act on him, Los Angeles police said. Officers were dispatched to a compound near Beverly Hills after a caretaker at the home reported a disturbance Wednesday. Authorities then arrested Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz al-Saud, 28, on suspicion of forced oral copulation of an adult. He was booked and freed on $300,000 bail, according to jail records. Police determined al-Saud does not have diplomatic immunity in the case, said Capt. Tina Nieto. He’s scheduled to appear in court Oct. 19.
