(Newser) – A Saudi prince was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles for allegedly attempting to force a worker to perform oral sex on him, the Los Angeles Times reports. A neighbor tells the paper that someone described as "a resident" reportedly saw a bloody woman attempting to climb over the 8-foot-high wall of the $37 million compound being rented by Majed Abdulaziz al-Saud while yelling for help. Police responded to the gated property and arrested the 28-year-old prince. He was released from jail yesterday on $300,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court next month.

CBS News notes al-Saud does not have diplomatic immunity, something granted under the Geneva Convention to certain foreign nationals operating as diplomats. The neighbor tells the Times the house is regularly rented out by foreign nationals for a few weeks at a time, but that the community hasn't had to previously deal with much beyond are a few parties and some armed guards stationed at the gates. (Earlier this month, a member of the Qatari royal family allegedly bailed on his Beverly Hills rental home after terrorizing the neighborhood while behind the wheel of a $1.4 million Ferrari.)
