Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia Avoids Charges in LA Assault Case
Saudi Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud will not be charged over the alleged assault in Los Angeles, prosecutors say.
Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, was arrested in September on suspicion of assault on an employee at his Beverly Hills mansion.
However, prosecutors say they do not have enough evidence against the Saudi prince.
Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud’s lawyer, Alan Jackson, said his client was innocent and claimed the case was “some kind of shakedown for money”.
The case has been forwarded to the city attorney for a possible misdemeanor charge, Jane Robison, a spokesperson for the city attorney’s office, said.
There were four alleged victims and one did not cooperate with authorities, Jane Robison added.
Police were called to Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud’s estate after a neighbor saw a bloodied woman calling for help and trying to climb over a wall.
Two days later, three women who worked as servants at the mansion sued the prince, alleging battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
This case will be reviewed by a prosecutor in the city attorney’s office, a spokesman said.
