Boston Police report officers this morning recovered a car that had been carjacked at gunpoint the night before at Appleton and Tremont streets - and arrested the two people who were driving it around Uphams Corner.

Police say that shortly before 12:50 a.m. on Tuesday, a man:

Was approached by a young Hispanic male and a young black male who displayed a firearm before demanding the victim’s wallet, money and cell phone. The victim stated the black male pointed the firearm at him while the Hispanic male removed him from the vehicle. Both suspects entered the vehicle and fled the area onto Tremont Street. Officers searched the area for the suspects and the vehicle to no avail.
