Police report at least 10 sightings of the so-called Tickler, who some in the neighborhood had long believed to be a myth. At least three students report having encountered him on the same night, April 7.
“This is no myth,” said Sergeant Michael O’Hara, community service officer for the Boston Police district that covers Allston and Brighton. “It’s happening.”
The Tickler has been reported over the last two years in an area from Lake Street to South Street in Brighton popular with BC students who live off campus, O’Hara said.
Victims have described him as a 5-foot-8-inch black male of unknown age in dark clothing and a hoodie, he said. Some reported that the man watched them through their windows as he committed a sex act.
Not only is this terrifying and grodey for Chestnut Hill residents but totally inconvienient for Urban DIctionary Staffers who now have to go and change THIS definition of what a Boston Tickler actually is. F*ck!
