I'm kinda on the resident's side in this one. I'm sure if they'd been aware, they would have done something. I live close to downtown and I'm always hearing shouting and screaming as drunken asscranks walk home from the bars. If I'm outside smoking, I'll wait and see where the screams and shouts go to be sure no one's in trouble, but if I'm in bed, y'know.
I think we can safely assume she wasn't saying, "Help me!"
