    The Los Angeles Police Department arrested a Saudi Arabian prince on Wednesday for attempting to force one of the employees at the Beverly Hills mansion he was renting to perform oral sex.

    Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, was arrested after a neighbor in his gated community saw a bleeding woman, screaming, as she desperately tried to escape by scaling an 8’ tall wall which surrounds the 37 million dollar property.

    The neighbor, Tennyson Collins, called the police and accompanied them on to the prince’s rented property.

    Police interviewed approximately 20 people who were at the estate, most of whom were staff, before escorting them out of the home.

    On Thursday, Al-Saud was released on $300,000 dollar bail.  The LAPD has determined that the prince is not protected by diplomatic immunity in the case after speaking with the consul liaison.

    Many foreign royalty may receive diplomatic immunity in criminal cases, however, it depends on the dignitary's status in his home country’s government as well as the level of the offense he is accused of committing in the United States, Captain Tina Nieto told the Times.

    On Friday, it was reported that the prince has been accused of having attacked other women in the home.

    Detectives "found more victims who were also alleging crimes against Mr. Al-Saud," LAPD Officer Drake Madison told the LA Times.

    The prince is scheduled to appear in court on the forced oral copulation of an adult charges on October 19.
