The 28-year-old Majed Abdulaziz Al Saud was arrested on Wednesday after he tried to force a worker at a Beverly Hills estate to perform oral sex.
Los Angeles police Officer Drake Madison quoted by local media said Al Saud was arrested on Wednesday afternoon but was released on a $300,000 bond the next day.
The Los Angeles Times and KCBS-TV reported that the prince did not have diplomatic immunity.
Numerous people were interviewed by police after a bleeding woman was seen by a neighbour screaming for help as she tried to scale the huge estate’s surrounding wall.
The neighbour told the Times that the $37m property, in one of the most exclusive enclaves in the world, has been rented for weeks at a time by foreign nationals over the past year.
The Saudi officials have not commented regarding the incident so far as the prince is expected to be in court on 19 October.
