Saudi prince arrested, faces sex charge in Los Angeles

A Saudi prince has been arrested in Los Angeles on charges of sexual assault, false imprisonment and battery.

Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud is accused of trying to force a woman to perform a sex act on him, Los Angeles police Officer Drake Madison said.

Police were called to a home in the city on Wednesday afternoon, where they interviewed numerous people.

Al-Saud has been released on $300,000 bail and is set to appear in court on October 19.

“It’s unclear whether Al-Saud has diplomatic immunity. CNN left a message at the Saudi Embassy in Washington but has as yet received no response.
