Raskolnikov and Razumihkin leave Porfiry's to meet with Dunya and Pulcheria; they discuss the  implications of the conversation about the murder, and Raskolnikov is certain that he is suspected.  Razumihkin is infuriated that suspicion is cast upon Rodya, and he plans to reprimand his distant  relative, Porfiry.

As he is leaving his room, the porter points out a man who was inquiring after him. When  approached, the mysterious stranger calls him "Murderer!" and leaves. Even though Rodya follows  him, nothing is resolved. This episode leaves him visibly agitated and confused, and rather than  going to his mother's, he returns to his room and sleeps.
