There has to be an easier way to get dinner.

Boston police said they arrested a pair of teens who allegedly were part of a group that used a gun to rob a delivery driver of four sandwiches in Roxbury.

Police said officers were called to the area of Copeland and Waverly streets just before 9 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an armed robbery.


The restaurant worker told police he was delivering four subs when a group of four men approached him. One of the men pulled out a gun and the group took the subs.

A description of the suspects was put out and officers found two teenagers nearby who matched the description. They refused to stop for officers, who followed them into the lobby of a building. There, the officers found two subs that were still warm to the touch, police said. Also, police found a gun in the snow outside the building.

Police said the driver also identified the two teens as part of the group.

Police said they charged a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, both from Boston, with armed robbery.
