A Saudi prince arrested at a hillside compound near Beverly Glen for allegedly forcing oral copulation with a woman was released today after posting $300,000 bail, according to authorities. Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud was arrested at 4:10 p.m. Wednesday in the 2500 block of Wallingford Drive, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Al-Saud, 28, is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 19.
A caretaker at a home at a gated community on Wallingford Drive called police to report a disturbance. After officers talked to several people, Al- Saud was arrested, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Neighbor Tennyson Collins told The Times that a resident reported seeing a bleeding woman scream for help as she tried to scale the home’s 8-foot-high wall Wednesday afternoon.
When Collins drove home from work after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, the publication reported, police followed his car through the gates and onto the property — described as a 22,000-square foot compound valued at $37 million. Police told The Times that Al-Saud was renting the home and that they had to escort some 20 people out of the house, many of them staff.
It’s the second time this month that police have had dealings with foreign royals living in the Los Angeles area.
