Two arrested for armed holdup outside Fields Corner convenience store

The Boston Police Department reports arresting two local men on charges they used a gun to hold up somebody about to enter the Tedeschi store at 1580 Dorchester Ave. on Tuesday night.

According to police, the two showed a gun and demanded money - and then punched their victim. Police say the pair, described only as 22 and 29, were arrested not long after and identified by their victim - and by his papers, which were found on one of the suspects.
