A woman who claims she went on a Tinder date with Bryan Kohberger said the 28-year-old accused of brutally slaying four University of Idaho students invited himself into her apartment, then “kept trying to touch” her.
The woman allegedly matched with Kohberger, who asked her out to the movies, about seven years ago, according to her TikTok video about the bizarre encounter, posted Monday.
“My interactions with Bryan were very brief. I don’t know much about him,” the woman said, claiming the two chatted through the dating app for at most a day before meeting up.
“We matched on Tinder, we talked for a couple of hours and then he was like, ‘Hey, you want to go to the movies with me tonight?’ I was like, sure. So we went to the movies,” she said.
The TikTok user, whose name is listed as Hayley on the app, recalled Kohberger’s bizarre and apparently very forward behavior after the movie.
“I thought he was just going to drop me off, but that was not the case. He kind of invited himself inside,” she said.
The Post reached out to Hayley via Instagram on Tuesday for comment.
Once inside the woman’s apartment, Kohberger wanted to watch another movie on Netflix — but that’s when things took a turn toward the creepy. According to the woman, Kohberger couldn’t keep his hands to himself.
“He kept trying to touch me. Not like inappropriately, just trying to tickle me, and like rub my shoulders and stuff and I was like ‘why are you touching me?’” she recalled.
Kohberger apparently “got super serious” in response to her accusation and denied touching her.
“He’s like, ‘I’m not,’ and I’m like, ‘you are though,’ and he’s like, ‘I’m not touching you.’ Kind of trying to gaslight me into thinking that he didn’t touch me, which is weird,” she claimed.
The woman said that at this point, she excused herself to go use the shared dorm bathroom — and Kohberger allegedly followed her there.
“He didn’t go in with me, but like he stood outside the door … I just thought that was weird,” she said.
Realizing she wanted Kohberger to leave but being too socially awkward to ask, the woman said she pretended to throw up.
“It wasn’t because I was scared of him or thought he would hurt me if I asked him to leave. It was just mostly because I’m socially awkward. I didn’t know how to ask him to leave,” the woman claimed.
Kohberger then allegedly messaged the woman on Tinder to tell her he was leaving.
While her plan was successful, Kohberger allegedly texted her about an hour later and said she had “good birthing hips,” the woman claimed.
“So I never talked to him [again],” she added at the very end of her video.
Kohberger, a PhD student studying criminology at Washington State University was charged with four counts of murder and one count of burglary relating to the brutal stabbing deaths of Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.
The four friends were all studying at the University of Idaho and living in Moscow at the time of the attacks. They had returned to their off-campus house on the night of Nov. 13 after partying at different locations when the killer struck around 4 a.m.
Two roommates who also lived in the house escaped unscathed, although one had an encounter with the black-clad, masked killer as he exited the house, leaving her frozen in fear.
Here’s the latest coverage on the brutal killings of four college friends:
Kohberger — who has been linked to the crime scene by DNA evidence, cellphone data and his car — made his first court appearance in Idaho last Thursday and is being held at the Latah County Jail.
He was arrested after authorities raided his family’s Pennsylvania home on Dec. 30, seven weeks after the grisly murders took place in Moscow, about 10 miles from Washington State University’s Pullman campus.
