More women have come forward alleging attacks by a Saudi prince who was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault in Beverly Hills this week.

Police arrested Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 29, Wednesday afternoon at a home on the 2500 block of Wallingford Drive after a neighbor said a woman was seen bleeding and scaling a wall on the property and a caretaker at the house called to report a disturbance. Al-Saud was arrested on suspicion of forced oral copulation of a female worker at the compound and then posted his $300,000 bail and was released from jail on Thursday.

Now police are investigating claims that Al-Saud assaulted other women on the estate, according to theLos Angeles Times. A civil suit filed by three women on Friday claims he attacked them for several days, calling his behavior “extreme,” “outrageous” and “despicable.”

Police who arrived at the home Wednesday described encountering a “party atmosphere,” according Lt. John Jenal, and escorted about 20 people out of the house. One neighbor said the home had been rented out for weeks at a time by foreign nationals over the past year.
