VIDEO: 'Flash mob' robbery strikes DC convenience store

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Police have released surveillance video that shows persons of interest in a "flash mob" robbery that happened at a 7-Eleven store in northeast D.C.

Police say the robbery occurred on Monday, April 14 at around 9:35 p.m.

On the video, about 20 people are seen entering a convenience store on the 4400 block of Benning Road -- one right after another.

The video shows several unidentified subjects dashing out the store with what appear to be goods in their hands.

According to the police report, in a matter of about three minutes, the suspects took candy, snacks and soda before running out of the door. Police say the total value of the stolen merchandise was about $350.

No one has been charged with a crime at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department's TEXT TIP LINE to 50411.
