A Wauwatosa man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he sexually assaulted an Elkhorn woman he met online, court records show.

Tamencea A. Reed, 42, pleaded not guilty Jan. 25 to two counts of third-degree sexual assault, misdemeanor theft and a new charge of intimidating a witness.

Walworth County Judge Phil Koss agreed to lower Reed’s bond to $5,000 cash at the Jan. 25 court appearance, according to online court records.

Reed had been charged with a count of second-degree sexual assault, but it appears that charge was amended to another third-degree charge.

The state Crime Lab matched Reed’s DNA collected from a woman who alleged the assault, according to the criminal complaint.

The two met on the website PlentyOfFish. The woman told police Reed came to her home Sept. 29 to watch a movie, but he sexually assaulted her and took her laptop and Kindle, the complaint states.

Reed is set to appear for a status conference at 1:15 p.m. Feb. 21.
