BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office will not file felony charges against a Saudi prince following his arrest on suspicion of sexual assault at a Beverly Hills home.

Prosecutors say Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud could still face misdemeanor charges.

The 29-year-old was arrested in September after a housekeeper who worked at the home in the 2500 block of Wallingford Drive told police she was sexually assaulted.

A resident reported seeing a bloodied woman screaming for help, trying to climb the property's 8-foot-high fence. Investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department said the Saudi prince tried to force the worker to perform a sex act on him.

Al-Saud is also being sued by three women for assault and battery, false imprisonment and sexual harassment.
