Thomasville--  Police say 33-year-old Michael Connell, Jr. attacked the 27-year old woman at the home they share Friday night.  He's charged with rape, aggravated sodomy, and battery.  

"She woke up in the bathtub. She had passed. . . he had choked her, and she woke up when he was splashing water on her face, and he had put her in the bathtub. And then he left the scene," said Lt. Karen Burklow-McCree, investigator with the Thomasville Police Department.

The woman ran to a neighbor's house after the assault to call the police. Connell surrendered Sunday.
