Several students who live near Boston College have reported that some guy has walked into their homes and either tickled their feet or watched them sleep, but didn’t steal anything.
At least 10 people have gone to the police to report their experiences with the mystery man dubbed by locals as “the Tickler,” reports Boston.com.
Many people in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood, where the Tickler has struck, long believed the creeper to be a local urban legend.
“This is no myth,” Boston police sergeant Michael O’Hara told Boston.com. “It’s happening.”
The Tickler’s targets have described him as a 5’8″ black man who wears dark clothes including a hoodie. One guy said he saw the man sporting a ski mask.
