Somehow, we missed the editor's note on boston.com's scoop last week about the guy sneaking into the homes of BC students and tickling them while they sleep:
On Wednesday, May 28, the Boston Police Department stated that they have identified only one incident in the last two years where a foot was touched and that they know of no police reports that refer to any actions that can be described as tickling.
Buzzfeed quotes a BPD spokesman:
The quotes given by Sgt. Oâ€™Hara were given in response to questions unrelated to tickler incidents. They were printed out of context by the reporter.
