WASHINGTON (AP) - Authorities say a group of young people rushed into a high-end clothing store in Georgetown and robbed the business.

The Metropolitan Police Department says a group of roughly 20 to 30 young people committed the “flash mob” robbery at the Diesel store Tuesday night.

Police say no injuries were reported. The group was last seen running along M Street. Information about how much merchandise was stolen wasn’t immediately available.

In February 2014, dozens of teens committed a similar flash mob robbery at the now-closed True Religion store nearby.
