Two Milwaukee teens were arrested for disorderly conduct after they threatened a gay man on the bus Sept. 13 and showed up at his workplace in Mayfair Mall later that day, police said.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
The boys, 16 and 17, threw candy at the 20-year-old man and made comments about his sexual orientation. The man asked the bus driver for help, so the driver pulled over and told the boys to get out at 104th Street and North Avenue.
The boys saw the man's work ID and said they'd be paying him a visit later to beat him up. They showed up at the store where he works.
In addition to the disorderly conduct arrest, the older boy was arrested for giving false information to an officer and trespassing (he had been banned from entering the mall due to a prior crime), and on a warrant because he had run away from a group home.
