COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - 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 Colorado Springs Gazette reported (https://bit.ly/2x0Dy28 ) Thursday that an El Paso County judge dismissed the case against Ahmed Sameer Almesbahi on Aug. 28. The alleged victim is a Kazakhstan native who was attending graduate school in Colorado. The dismissal is restricted from public access, leaving the circumstances of the woman’s departure from the country a mystery.

Colorado Springs police say Almesbahi is the son of a wealthy Saudi family. His attorney, Lisa Wayne, did not return a phone call seeking comment.
