A Van Nuys homeowner is demanding action from police because a homeless man keeps camping out on her porch.

Shacola Thompson shared video of the man sleeping on her porch, smoking, and just hanging around.

She also says he has vandalized her home.

He repeatedly returns despite warnings from police that he should stay away, Thompson says.

“I don’t feel safe when I come out here and try to enjoy my coffee or sit and do my yoga,” Thompson told KTLA. “I had to take up my rug for him not to lay here, but that didn’t stop him. I hope that LAPD will do their job and take this individual away from this community. Take him somewhere so he can be evaluated.

LAPD did not respond to KTLA’s request for comment.
