The unnamed boy told Clark County, Nev., District Court Monday he was "freaked out. I wanted to leave. I didn't know what to do," when he met defendant Mazen Alotaibi, 24, at the Circus Circus hotel on New Year's Eve 2012.
Alotaibi, a sergeant in Saudi Arabia's air force, has pleaded not guilty to nine felonies, including first-degree kidnapping, sexual assault and lewdness.
The Saudi government is paying for Alotaibi's defense, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
The teen confirmed he lied to police in his original statement, testifying he went willingly to Alotaibi's hotel room. The boy said he noticed Alotaibi and his friends appeared high, and concluded he could get marijuana from them.
He further testified Alotaibi kissed him as the two were in a hotel elevator. The boy said he did not seek anything sexual but shrugged off the elevator incident and smoked marijuana with Alotaibi outside the hotel. He said they later entered Alotaibi's hotel room, where he was raped by Alotaibi.
Prosecutor Jacqueline Bluth characterized the boy, in her opening statement, as ashamed, frightened and interested only in not being caught attempting to obtain marijuana.
Alotaibi remains in jail on a $1.72 million bail. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in jail, the newspaper noted.
