    Default knew this man dancing

    Are these correct:

    1-When she went into the room, she saw some men sitting and talking and some others dancing on the dance floor. She knew this guy dancing and went towards him. (she knew this guy who was dancing)

    2-When she went into the room, she saw some men sitting and talking and some others dancing on the dance floor. She knew a man dancing and went towards him. (she knew a man who was dancing)

    3-When she went into the room, she saw some men sitting and talking and some others dancing on the dance floor. She liked a man dancing and went towards him. (she liked a man who was dancing)

    I always use "who was" in cases such as these, but it seems to me that the versions without it are correct as well...

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
