Students, particularly those in the area of Georgetown University, be sure to keep your windows and doors locked. NBC 4 reports that the notorious “Georgetown Cuddler” may have struck in the area near your campus again:
On Wednesday, an intruder broke into a home on the 3300 block of Prospect Street, police said.
It may be the man responsible for a number of break-ins in the neighborhood. Students call him the Cuddler because he will climb into a bed or couch where a resident is sleeping.
“You can say it’s a little creepy,” said Georgetown student Katrina Koser. “Obviously waking up with someone you don’t know in your bed would be extremely scary.”
In the most recent incident, the Cuddler allegedly laid down on top of a woman on her sofa, possibly after getting in through an unlocked door around 4 a.m.
Yikes! Be sure to lock up before you hit the sack and when you head out every day. Remember, if any of the locks are not working, call your landlord and make him or her fix them! If you can’t get any results, give us a call. So far, the “Cuddler” hasn’t taken the touchy-feelyness any farther, but you can never be too careful and police are concerned that he might. Besides, isn’t snuggling up to someone without permission in the dead of night enough?!
