A Saudi prince who allegedly tried to force a female worker to perform a sex act on him inside a Beverly Glen residence in California was arrested on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times has reported.

Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 29, was held by police for hours on Wednesday for the sexual assault and police said Friday they were looking into claims that he also targeted other women at the  22,000-square-foot house near Beverly Hills.

Officer Drake Madison said the prince was held on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual assault and battery and he was charged on suspicion of forcing the oral copulation of a worker inside the residence.

A civil lawsuit filed in LA County Superior Court on Friday claims he attacked other women inside the home for several days, according to the report.

The suit, filed by three women identified as Jane Does, accused the prince of “extreme,” “outrageous,” and “despicable” behavior that started Monday and ended in his arrest.

Officers who arrived at the home on Wednesday, found a “party atmosphere” inside the compound, and escorted about 20 people out of the house, many of them staff, the Times reported.

Neighbors reported seeing a bleeding woman screaming for help as she tried to scale an 8-foot-high wall that surrounds the property, according to the report.

The prince was freed Thursday afternoon after posting $300,000 bail.
