    A Saudi prince of the ruling royal family of Saudi Arabia was arrested Thursday for allegedly sexually assaulting an employee at his Beverly Hills mansion, police said.

    The alleged assault took place in a gated community at Wallingford Drive.

    LAPD said Al-Saud does not have diplomatic immunity in this case.

    Al-Saud posted $300,000 bail and was released. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 19, according to the LAPD.
