DORCHESTER (CBS) — Two Dorchester men have been charged with an armed robbery that occurred on Friday morning in Dedham.

On Friday, Boston police arrested the suspects who allegedly brandished a gun during a Dedham robbery that took place around 6 a.m.

Dedham police issued an alert about the incident and provided a description of the suspect vehicle which came back registered to a Fuller Street resident in Dorchester.

Officers responded to that street and found the suspect vehicle, a blue Ford Explorer SUV, parked and unoccupied in the driveway.

Investigators remained in the area, performing low-profile surveillance.

A short time later, police say four people emerged from the house, got into the vehicle and began to back out of the driveway.

When officers approached, the occupants suddenly jumped out of the SUV and tried to flee back inside the house but officers were able to stop the individuals before they could gain entry, police say.

Police say they arrived on scene with the victim of the armed robbery who positively identified Dartanyan Pledger, 23, and Brian Joyce, 21, both of Dorchester, as the suspects who had robbed her at gunpoint.

The suspects were both arrested and charged with armed robbery.

Investigators from Dedham, with help from Boston police, later executed a search warrant on Fuller Street and allegedly recovered two guns.

The incident remains under investigation.
