Northampton Clears Out Encampment

A recently-set-up homeless camp in  Northampton is no more. 

Mayor David Narkewicz says public works  employees cleared out the camp in a wooded area of city property on  Tuesday morning and says it was abandoned. 

Narkewicz says the city sent  out social workers first to try and help the individuals living there,  but that they had already left by the time the workers arrived. 

A number  of criminal incidents had been reported at the camp, including a  reported stabbing in December.
