She stated she only had the door cracked enough to speak through, but he pushed the door open, grabbed her hand, and kissed it. Prajapati then entered the room, and after he closed the door, he grabbed her by the waist and kissed her on the neck. She responded by pushing him away and asking him to leave. Before leaving, Prajapati pressed his finger against her breast and asked if she had a boyfriend. Hale said she told him to go again, and he walked to the door, opened it, and said, “No problems.” Afterward, she bolted the door and alerted the authorities.
