Police: ‘Toe Sucker’ Struck Again

`Police say a man who previously handled the toes of a sleeping burglary victim reverted to his old ways Sunday night, allegedly sneaking into a Greenwood apartment and stealing money before touching a slumbering resident’s feet.

William Russell was arrested at a hotel not long after he allegedly entered a Greenwood apartment without invitation and stole $52 while its occupants were sleeping, police said.

Police said that after Russell took the money, he entered a bedroom where a man and woman were asleep. Russell touched the man’s feet, Greenwood police Detective Matt Fillenwarth said.

The man who was sleeping “woke up and felt someone rubbing his leg and fondling his toes, and finally … he realized it was not his girlfriend,” Fillenwarth said.’
