A Saudi Arabian prince has been arrested in Los Angeles for allegedly forcing a worker at a Beverly Hills mansion to perform a sex act on him.
Los Angeles police said Majed Abdulaziz al-Saud, 28, was arrested on Wednesday and released the following day after posting a $300,000 (£197,000) bond .
He is scheduled to appear in court on October 19 to face a charge of "forced oral copulation".
Al-Saud does not have diplomatic immunity, police said.
The Los Angeles Times reported a neighbour had spotted a bloodied woman calling for help and trying to climb over a wall surrounding the $37m (£24.3m) estate.
The Saudi Arabian embassy is yet to comment on the case.
