A man on his way to work around 10 p.m. on Monday was robbed by two men in white plastic masks after he had exited the Savin Hill station.

Police stopped and arrested two suspects, one with a realistic-looking but non-functional starter's pistol, around 10:25 p.m. at Savin Hill Avenue and Pleasant Street, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

According to a police report, the two grabbed a bag the man was carrying - a bag that only contained a salad. Police did not recover the salad, however.

Adronique Dossantos, 18, of Dorchester, and Kostya Ragin, 19, of Needham, were arraigned Tuesday in Dorchester Municipal Court on armed-robbery charges, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. Judge Serge Georges, Jr. imposed $3,500 bail for Ragin and $2,500 for Dossantos and ordered them to abide by a curfew and wear GPS devices, the DA's office reports.

According to the DA's office, the gun was a Mondial Model 1938 starter’s pistol, "not capable of firing bullets."
