Another D.C. 'cuddler' on the loose

By Washington Post Editors

Looks like the District has another "cuddler" on the loose.

His latest victim: a Northwest D.C. woman who woke up just before 6:30 a.m. Sunday to find him cuddling her in her bed, police said. The woman was not injured, police said, and she was not able to give officers a good description of the man.

The incident occurred in the 3800 block of Calvert Street NW, police said. It is not clear how the man got into the woman's residence.

to label this guy a "cuddler" makes it seem cute and innocent. that's VERY dangerous ground to tread Washington Post. The bottom line is the guy is an intruder that apparently scouts single women.

There has to be a better headline title than "cuddler" for a guy who combines sexual assault and unlawful entry. It makes one wonder if the Post is even aware of how fast it's sinking into Tabloid Journalism.

How about some investigation into how this guy gets into a spooning position with a woman (who lives alone?) without waking her up. That seems like the kind of that requires explanation. Are these women drugged? Is this something that could be done merely by moving slowly and silently? Is there a way to tell a person would be a heavy sleeper when they are awake? Don't we have something like 5 Universities around here where they study sleep that might be able to shed some light on this issue?

Agreed. Please don't contribute to this guy being called The Cuddler. This a very dangerous situation, and it shouldn't be downplayed, or trivialized.

I third the above comments. Imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up with a stranger in your bed. This is not a joke and it should not be treated as such. Please give this situation a little more respect and gravity as you would any other crime.
