Two women in midtown Sacramento said they slept outside overnight amid leaving bags of clothes, bicycles and other belongings piled on the sidewalk, after being evicted by their landlord this week.
Innett Hamilton, 61, and Kimberly Carona, 55, said they had no where to go after being forced to move out of their U Street apartment complex because the landlord was completing upgrades related to a roach infestation.
On Friday, the two women – who said they both collect social security – tended to their possessions, trying to figure out what to do next. Hamilton said she will probably find a motel, while Carona said she had no place to go.
“I’m going to the river, where everyone else goes,” Carona said.

The complex is managed by Smooth Sailing Realty and Property Management, which did not respond to requests for comment.
The pair said they were cited by the Sacramento Police Department for unlawful camping, which was confirmed by a department spokesman.
The pair were officially evicted from their apartment on September 29, according to the police department.
