Police searching for 'serial tickler'

BOSTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police say a "serial tickler" is sneaking into homes in Boston and accosting people while they sleep.

Three different residents were hit during one morning.

Detectives assume it's the same guy each time and say similar assaults have taken place before.

"Thought it was the cat, felt something next to his head, he kicked at the guy, and he ran out the door," said David Master.

So far all the targets are men. They say he doesn't carry a weapon and never steals anything.

Police say in all the cases the doors on the homes were unlocked.
