IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

A man and woman face prostitution charges after a fight over money in Iowa City on Wednesday.

Iowa City police were called to an apartment in the 500 block of Ernest Street at around 4:23 p.m. Wednesday for a fight over money.

According to officers, 23-year-old Alysia Marie Talbert went to the apartment to perform an "erotic massage" for $200 after 27-year-old Hamed El Mohamd called her with a phone number he found on the website she runs.

The criminal complaint states that the two had sex, and when it was over, Talbert asked for the money and a struggle ensued.

Talbert told officers that when she tried to leave, El Mohamd locked the door and wouldn't let her leave. They say El Mohamd then put his hands around her neck, pushed her against the bed and hit her on the right side of her head.

Police say Talbert told them that she had been prostituting for about five years and created a website specifically for Iowa that detailed the services she offered while she was in the area.

Officers say she had the $200 on her and found several text messages they say indicate she was involved with prostitution throughout Iowa.

Talbert is charged with prostitution. Mohamd is charged with prostitution and assault causing bodily injury.
