Alysia Talbert and Hamed Mohamd

Two people who reportedly fought over money for a prostitution transaction in Iowa City both ended up under arrest.

Police said Hamed Mohamd, 27, agreed to pay Alysia Talbert, 23, $200 in exchange for sex at his home in Iowa City, Iowa Wednesday, April 11, 2013.

When Talbert asked for payment, they struggled over the money.

The criminal complaint said Mohamd locked the door and refused to let Talbert leave.  Police said Talbert had “abrasions to her temple and red marks on both sides of her neck,” allegedly caused by Mohamd hitting her and putting his hands around her neck.

Mohamd was charged with assault causing bodily injury.

Police said Talbert admitted to being a prostitute and that she had a website “for the Iowa area that highlighted the services offered while she was in the area.”  She was charged with prostitution.

Talbert and Mohamd both were held in the Johnson County Jail.
