A homeless camp along a Portland, Oregon, street is spilling over into the RV park across the fence. Residents of the park say people from the homeless camp are stealing from them and threatening them with weapons.
The sidewalk on Southeast 157th Avenue is covered in trash, tents and broken-down cars and RVs. Piles of clothes and old bikes line a chain link fence—the only separation between Tall Firs Mobile Home & RV Park and the camp.
“My ability to get new tenants in there is basically zero because nobody wants to live next to everything that’s going on over there,” said Jeremy Robeson, who owns the park.
“It’s horrendous. I’ve lived here 13 years, never once has this ever been like this,” said Darla Sheets. “Junk everywhere, rats, no respect whatsoever— taking over the street.” She put up barricades behind her home to stop people from camping there.
