After she heard the male exit the bathroom, she ran out into the hall, where her boyfriend was waiting just outside the door. When she told her boyfriend about the incident, he said he had not seen anyone exit or enter the bathroom. The female went back into the bathroom and saw two individuals, a male and a female. According to the female, the male did not appear to be fully dressed, however, the woman with him was clothed.
