A source close to the situation explained:
Watch Out, Feet! There Is A Serial "Tickler" Targeting Students Who Wake Up To See Him Standing Over Their Bed & Tickling Their Feet!
This is something straight out of a horror story!
Students who live in the Boston area are reporting to police that there is a man breaking into their homes, watching them sleep, and sometimes tickling their feet.
What. The. Effing. Shiz.
Apparently the students thought the "Tickler" was just a myth until it happened to them.
One of the students, Teddy Raddell, a junior at Boston College, described his encounter with the strange man breaking into his roommate's bedroom.
“I thought my roommate had fallen down the steps, but then he started yelling. I got up and he said that he had woken up to someone touching his feet. The guy didn’t take anything and there were laptops and wallets out in the main room."
So, it's just some super creepy dude with a foot fetish breaking into homes?
That is SO DISTURBING!
Kids, apparently, had heard stories about the Tickler, but thought they were mere urban legend, however, Sergeant Michael O'Hara is saying the opposite.
“This is no myth. It’s happening.”
So, so, so creepy!
We'd find it SO hard to sleep at night if this were happening around us!
Hopefully all the students stay safe and they catch this guy soon!
