Third strike foul tip

Question

Man on first base. Batter foul tips third strike and the catcher catches the ball for the strike out. Can the runner steal second base without tagging first base?

Yes. It is not a caught fly ball--for the purposes of baserunning, a foul tip is treated the same as any other strike (with one exception not relevant here.)
