‘Serial Tickler’ targets Boston College students

| May 28, 2014

This one sounds like a subplot in a John Waters film (for those of you who have seen “Polyester”) but we can understand why police officials are taking this seriously.

Still, let’s be thankful that’s it’s not a rapist or a perpetrator bent on mass casualties who is evading campus security in this case.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Police are searching for a ‘Serial Tickler’ who has been targeting Boston College students

The Tickler, who has been breaking into the homes of BC students to watch them sleep or tickle their feet, is no laughing matter.

By Evan BleierBOSTON, May 28 (UPI) –Police are on the lookout for a suspect known as “The Tickler” who has reportedly been breaking into the homes of Boston College students to watch them sleep or tickle their tootsies.

Long thought to be a myth, Boston police have confirmed at least 10 sightings of the tickler, three of which occurred on the night of April 7.

“This is no myth,” community service officer Sgt. Michael O’Hara told the Boston Globe. “It’s happening.”
