first, this looked weird to me.
But actually, this is the same as the {neH}-case, with the example of {vIjonta' vIneH} "I wanted to 
capture them". I used to think this is only for {neH}, but it's for all {blabla 'e' vlabla} 

vIjonta' vIneH
this means only one thing: I wanted to capture them
(literally: I want that I have captured them)

Dajonta' 'e' vISov
--> so this can mean two things:
  "I know that you have captured them"
  "I knew that you capture them"
