Did Lucy have a legitimate reason to call the police? Did she think she did?

Did she call the police? Did she want to report a crime?

Did Lucy dream that something, well, bad was going on? A crime? And she thought it was real? So she wanted to call the police?

Oh, so he's her boyfriend. And she's in his bed. Hmm.

Relevant what they (or at least what she) did before she fell asleep in his bed? Was he in bed with her when she woke up, or just nearby?

Did she recognize him as her boyfriend, or she thought he was someone else? Did she remember going to sleep in his room? Was she intoxicated with something (drugs, alcohol) before going to sleep? Did she suffer from some sort of amnesia? Caused by an accident? Did something happen to her boyfriend that made him unrecognizable at the first glance ? (cut his hair? shave his beard? try to fix the power outlet and missed? :-)

Did something relevant happen to her before she went to bed? Are the two bedrooms very similar, so when she woke up she thought it was her own bedroom?

Recapping what we know so far: Lucy and her boyfriend fell asleep in his bed. When she woke up, she wanted to call the police because she was surprised to find someone else in what she thought was her bed. Correct?

Is some feature of his bed similar to (or the same as) hers? Sheets? Blankets? Pillows? Size of the bed itself? Softness/firmness of the mattress?

Did either of them get up during the night? Him? Her? Did they switch sides of the bed somehow? Confusing Lucy?

Let me get this straight: the night(s) before she used to sleep in her bed. This particular night, she slept in his. When she got awake, she was confused. Correct so far?

When we are saying his/her bed, is it correct to imply also his/her room? Or were the beds in the same room? Were the beds in the same building? Are we referring to normal buildings or rather trains/boats? Were they on a trip?

When we are saying his/her bed, is it correct to imply also his/her room? yes Or were the beds in the same room? Were the beds in the same building? Are we referring to normal buildings this or rather trains/boats? Were they on a trip? no to rest

********SPOILER********
A friend of mine told me this story last week and the first thing I thought is that it'd make a nice puzzle.

She had moved into a new flat some months ago (like most of us did because of college) and spent a couple of nights there when she slept over at her boyfriend's place.
She woke up and thought that she was in her own new room and suddenly noticed a body in her bed. She panicked because she thought someone had entered her flat thorugh the window and was about to rape/rob/kill her so that she got up and wanted to call the police. On her way to the phone, she realised she was in her boyfriend's room and the guy next to was him.
