Woman faces threats from homeless people, goes to city for help

Posted: Updated:

Entergy has a work order in place to fix two lights just off Emile Street in Beaumont.  It's in response to a woman who says working lights may help solve a problem down the alley next to her home.

Blanchie Hebert says a select few homeless people are using a nearby vacant lot to pitch tent and stay the night.   She says they leave a mess behind and other items that indicate they are doing drugs and engaging in prostitution. 

Recently she says she complained and was threatened by one of the men. 

"They get rowdy over there and he told me he was going to put his boot up my rear end," Hebert said. 

Hebert went to Beaumont City Council with her story Tuesday.  She also hopes to get the alleyway, which is riddled with potholes, fixed.

Councilman Audwin Samuel was next with whom she wanted to speak. 

Samuel tells 12News he already left a note with his office about the problems after hearing Hebert speak to council.
