BOSTON (CBS) – Boston police are investigating three home invasions in the same Brighton neighborhood over the span of an hour-and-a-half.
The first break-in happened at 249 Foster Street around 3:55 a.m. A man who lives there reported that he woke up to find a man standing in his bedroom. The suspect was described as being tall with a medium build and wearing a mask and dark-colored clothing.
A second man reported waking up at 4:50 a.m. to find someone standing in his room at 64 Kirkwood Road, which is less than a quarter of a mile away. That suspect was described as a short to medium-sized man with light colored clothing, a sweater and a black mask.
A third incident happened about 5:20 a.m. at 239 Foster Street.
There, Boston College student David Master, told WBZ that his roommate woke up to the suspect tickled his feet.
“He felt tickling on his foot that he thought was the cat,” Master said. “Woke up and there was a man crouched right beside his bed.”
Master says his roommate kicked the man, who was wearing light-colored clothing and a black mask, and took off running.
Nothing was stolen in any of the break-ins. In all three instances, investigators say the victims had left their doors unlocked.
Boston police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
