Attention, Boston college students: are your feet safe? Boston police are investigating a “serial tickler” who has struck more than three times in the area in the past two years. 

His most recent spree took place in Brighton on Tuesday. The man, who has been described as around 5’8" and wearing a black ski mask and light-colored clothes, broke into three homes early in the morning. He took nothing — just tickled.

David C. Master, a Boston College student living in one of the apartments in question, told The Boston Globe that he heard his roommate screaming from another room at approximately 5:20 a.m. 

“My roommate woke up to a tickling on his foot. He thought it was a cat at first,’’ Master said. “He woke up, and there was a man crouched by his bed. He started yelling and the man ran out. I woke up and saw [the masked man] run by my door.”

‘The Tickler’ then fled the apartment.

According to Boston Police spokesperson Neva Coakley, the first break-in of this recent spree took place around 3:50 a.m., also on Foster Street. The students inside that apartment reported finding a man of similar description inside their home; when they confronted him, he ran away. An hour later, a man was found in a home on nearby Kirkwood Street. Once again, when the residents saw him, he quickly left.

According to Coakley, nothing was stolen from any of the apartments.

Master has said that in the future, he and his roommates will lock their door.
