SAUGUS, MA (CNN/WCVB) — Police say a "serial tickler" has been sneaking into houses in Boston and accosting people while they're sleeping.
The bizarre home invasions don't involve any theft -- just tickling.
The victim felt something on his foot and thought it was the cat until he woke up and looked over, and the man was crouched right by his bed.
The victim’s friend states “Apparently the tickler had come in, tickled him, and before my friend could like catch him or anything or do whatever, the guy ran out of the house."
"I had just woken up. I didn't get a good look, couldn't see him. He looked like a tall skinny guy." said Gino Caligore
"I haven't heard of any girls that have had the issue, but he has broken into this house now...this would be his third time breaking into this house."
"He's broken once into our side and twice into the other side."
