A Saudi prince has been arrested on charges of trying to force a worker at a Beverly Hills estate to perform oral sex, Los Angeles police have said.
Majed Abdulaziz Al Saud , 28, was arrested on Wednesday and was released on a $300,000 (£197,000) bond the next day.
The Los Angeles police department said the prince did not have diplomatic immunity, according to the Los Angeles Times and KCBS-TV.
The Times said police descended on the huge estate after a neighbour saw a bleeding woman screaming for help as she tried to scale the property’s surrounding wall on Wednesday.
The $37m property, in one of the most exclusive enclaves in the world, has been rented for weeks at a time by foreign nationals over the past year, the neighbour told the Times.
The prince is expected to be in court on 19 October, court records show.
Attempts to reach him by phone were unsuccessful and his lawyer was not immediately known. A call to the Saudi embassy was not immediately returned.
