    Two men were arrested on Monday night after they allegedly robbed another man of his salad at gunpoint.

    Boston Police said they received a call around 10:10 p.m. for a report of a person with a gun in the area of 135 Morrissey Boulevard in the city's Dorchester neighborhood.

    Upon arrival, officers spoke to the victim, who told them he had been robbed at gunpoint near the Savin Hill MBTA Station. He said the two suspects were wearing masks and khaki pants and showed a small handgun. According to Universal Hub, the two men stole a bag from the man that contained nothing but a salad.

    Plainclothes officers in the area heard the suspects' description broadcast over the police radio and realized that two men fitting that description had just run by them. Officers canvassed the area and found the two suspects in the area of 68 Pleasant St. They found a replica firearm on one of them, and each suspect also had a white face mask in their possession.
