Charges against Saudi student dismissed as alleged victim flees U.S.

COLORADO SPRINGS -

A former student at University of Colorado's Colorado Springs campus who is accused of attacking his girlfriend with a shish-kebab skewer, killing their unborn child, has had all charges against him dropped after the alleged victim fled the country.

The case against Ahmed Sameer Almesbahi started back in October 2016, when he was charged with unlawful termination of a pregnancy and sex assault. The alleged victim told investigators that she had been pregnant in 2015 and her pregnancy was terminated against her will by Almesbahi. She is a Kazakhstan native who was attending graduate school in Colorado.

Colorado Springs police say Almesbahi is the son of a wealthy Saudi family. His attorney, Lisa Wayne, did not comment on the dismissal. The case against Almesbahi was thrown out on Aug. 28. The dismissal is restricted from public access, which leaves the circumstances of the woman's departure from the country a mystery.
