From the text:

"We went to the boy's room. He was awake. Lying there like he was too scared to move. Dick told him to get up, but be didn't move, or move fast enough, so Dick punched him, pulled him out of bed, and I said, 'You don't have to hit him, Dick.' And I told the boy - he was only wearing a T-shirt - to put on his pants. He put on a pair of blue jeans, and we'd just locked him in the bathroom when the girl appeared..."
