Two Des Moines women face felony charges
A dating application used by a Des Moines woman connected her with a local man at his apartment complex earlier this week. The encounter led to felony and a host of other charges filed against Nakia Aujeanae Daily, 21, and Dzeneta Isakovic, 21, also of Des Moines, said Capt. Brian Batterson of the Marshalltown Police Department. Additionally, Marshall County District Court records reported Daily appeared at the man’s residence and attempted to make him think she was there for sex. Daily allegedly cried rape and called 911 to report the incident. Daily then allegedly started to remove items from the man’s apartment. When the man attempted to stop her, Daily produced a pocket knife and threatened him, and asked for money. The victim produced $80 and she enticed him to accompany her to a car with the intent of proceeding to an ATM for the man to withdraw more money. Isakovic was waiting in the car. The MPD, responding to the dispatcher’s call of a rape, arrived before their departure. An investigation resulted in charges of Robbery in the second degree, Possession of drug paraphernalia, providing false identification information, Possession of controlled substance-marijuana first offense, and False information indictable offense to law enforcement against Daily. Isakovic was charged with Robbery in the second degree, False information indictable offense to law enforcement, Providing false identification information, Possession of drug paraphernalia, and Possession of a controlled substance-marijuana third offense. Both were arrested and taken to Marshall County Jail, where they are being held on $10,000 cash or surety bond. Preliminary hearing for both is 1 p.m. Aug. 31.
