IOWA CITY — Authorities say two people face prostitution charges after fighting about payment for a sex act.
Alysia Talbert, 23, and Hamed El Mohamd, 27, were arrested Wednesday after police got report about a money dispute.
Police said El Mohamd agreed to pay Talbert $200 for an “erotic massage.” They later had consensual sex but began to fight when Talbert asked for the money.
Police said El Mohamd put his hands around Talbert's neck, pushed her against a bed and hit her head. Talbert told police she had been prostituting for the last five years.
El Mohamd and Talbert face aggravated misdemeanor charges of prostitution. El Mohamd also faces a serious misdemeanor charge of assault causing bodily injury. — AP
