Saudi Military Officer Arrested In LV

(A.P. LAS VEGAS)–A sergeant in Saudi Arabia’s air force is jailed in Las Vegas on charges that he pulled a teenage boy into Las Vegas Strip hotel room and sexually assaulted him the morning of New Year’s Eve.

Records show that 23-year-old Mazen Alotaibi is being held at the Clark County jail pending an evidence hearing Jan. 17 on kidnapping, sexual assault and felony coercion charges.

Police Lt. Dan McGrath says Alotaibi was arrested about 8 a.m. on Dec. 31 at the Circus Circus hotel.

Alotaibi’s lawyer didn’t immediately respond to messages.

Charging documents say the boy was younger than 14.

McGrath says Alotaibi produced a Saudi Arabian military identification and was visiting from Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.
