He’s out on bail and
soon to be out of town? out of the country. More women accuse Saudi prince after his arrest on sex crime charge, LAPD says – LA Times
A Saudi prince who allegedly tried to force a female worker to perform a sex act on him inside a Beverly Glen residence has now been accused of attacking other women in the home, according to Los Angeles police and court records.
Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 29, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of forced oral copulation of an adult.
Police said Friday that they are investigating claims that Al-Saud also preyed on other women on the estate.
Detectives “found more victims who were also alleging crimes against Mr. Al-Saud,” Officer Drake Madison said.
Al-Saud, 28, was detained by police for hours Wednesday afternoon as officers investigated a reported disturbance inside the 22,000-square-foot residence about 12:45 p.m., Madison said.
He was held on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery. He was booked on suspicion of forcing the oral copulation of a worker inside the residence, Madison said. He could not be reached for comment Friday.
A civil lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday claims he attacked other women inside the home for several days.
The suit, filed by three women only identified as Jane Does, accuses him of “extreme,” “outrageous,” and “despicable” behavior that started Monday and ended in his arrest.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and claims Al-Saud inflicted emotional distress, assault and battery, sexual discrimination and retaliation against the workers, among other allegations. The attorneys who filed the suit did not return calls seeking comment.
When officers arrived at the home Wednesday, they found a “party atmosphere” inside the compound, Lt. John Jenal said.
Neighbors reported seeing a bleeding woman screaming for help as she tried to scale an 8-foot-high wall that surrounds the property, at the end of a cul-de-sac in the 2500 block of Wallingford Drive. The home is within a gated community near Beverly Hills.
Officers escorted about 20 people out of the house, many of them staff, Collins said.
Al-Saud was freed Thursday afternoon after posting $300,000 bail, jail records show.
The Saudi Embassy in Washington did not respond to a request for comment.
The U.S. State Department said it did not appear Al-Saud has any diplomatic immunity and referred further questions to the LAPD.
Update 1: Why did authorities let him out on bail? Majed’s neighbors say he has likely fled the country and will not return
A Saudi Prince sexually abused and beat at least three women during a three-day party in his $37 million Beverly Hills home, a new lawsuit claims.
The graphic new allegations against Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, were filed by his alleged victims on Friday night.
It comes two days after the monarch, who does not have diplomatic immunity, was arrested on suspicion of forcing a woman to perform oral sex on him.
Majed was charged with forced oral copulation of an adult on Friday, then quickly released after posting a $300,000 bond.
The Saudi prince is scheduled to be in Los Angeles court October 19th.
However, speaking to Mail Online, neighbors say they believe the prince has already fled the country on a private jet, leaving his rented house behind.
One woman, who would only give her name as Isabel, said: ‘Numerous cars were coming in and out of the property late Thursday, and it looked like the Prince was moving out.’
Meanwhile another neighbor, Eric Stiskin, added: ‘I am sure he has taken off on his private jet by now. I don’t think he even needs a passport to get out of here.’
A third, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘He has all the wealth to disappear and not come back. He can make a quick getaway, never come back and the accusations could still remain here.
For the past few summers, rich young Saudis, Qataris, Kuwaitis and other Middle Easterners, accompanied by their personal Ferraris, Bugattis and Aventadors, have flocked to the area after their former haunts in Paris, London, Cannes and Monaco became less receptive to the crush of super-expensive supercars with Arabic tags drawing crowds of gaping rubberneckers.
While international travelers accounted for 63 percent of spending in the Golden Triangle last year – with one rich Saudi buying a $27million estate by helicopter without even walking inside, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Earlier this month a Qatari playboy fled the United States after police investigated a race through Beverly Hills involving his $1.4million Ferrari.
Beverly Hills Police said the man who initially claimed diplomatic immunity has now left the country.
