A Madison woman thinking she was just going to hang out with a man she met online ended up in the hospital, after the man allegedly sexually assaulted her in his residence.

Michael Neal, 31, Madison, was tentatively charged with second-degree sexual assault, Madison police said.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon at the man's home on Maple valley Drive.

"The two met on a social media site called Tinder," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
