Saudi military member charged with raping boy on New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas Strip hotel

Source: Las Vegas Sun

A Saudi Arabian military member has been charged with raping a 13-year-old boy who was visiting the Las Vegas Strip on New Year's Eve.

Metro Police were called Monday morning to Circus Circus by hotel security, according to Lt. Dan McGrath with Metro's sexual assault unit.

A teenaged boy had been walking down a hotel hallway sometime after 8 a.m. when Mazen Alotaibi – a member of the Saudi Arabian air force who was visiting Las Vegas on holiday – made contact and forced the boy into his room, McGrath said.

"This juvenile was not a family member and had no connection (with the suspect) before then," McGrath said. "It was a random contact."

1. Well It's not Rape If it's some silly boy

for hundreds, if not thousands of years it has been okay to anally rape boys. Not just in the Mid-East but on Western Ocean-Going vessels. If you don't think "cabin boys" were violated you're an idiot.

2. The old Royal Navy saw -

Ashore it's wine, women and song. On board - rum, bum and the lash.

3. I'm bookmarking this for the next time DUers slam others for never letting their kids head out alone

to play in the big wide world as youngsters.

Some of us are terrified!!

This story is disgusting. Hope that Saudi military guy's in jail. We have a history of "helping" the Saudis leave the country before they've been investigated by authorities for crimes (cough - 911 - cough).



That poor young man. So horrific.
