Fear Rises as Fights At Homeless Encampment Caught On Video

CBS:

A violent fight at a homeless camp in Hollywood was caught on camera. Residents say it happens all the time and they are fed up and fighting back.

As CBSLA’s Tom Wait reports, the video of the fight was recorded by a frustrated neighbor late at night. We’re told the two people going at it live or hang out in an encampment just outside of Poinsettia Park, near Hollywood.

The video is one of several sent to us by residents in the area. Last month there was another fight at the same encampment. Exasperated neighbors have called the city and LA City Councilman Paul Koretz’s office who represents the area but so far no action to remove the tents has happened.
