STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WFRV) – Two men in Stevens Point are facing charges after they told two cyclists to ride their bikes on the sidewalk and ended up causing $1,200 worth of damage.

The same vehicle later approached the two bicyclists in the area of Francis Street and Water Street. The two people in the vehicle got out of their vehicle and confronted the bicyclists.
