Flash Mob Robbery Caught on Video in Roslindale Store

CBS Boston, July 26, 2016


Unfortunately for Gloria Mantas, she became the victim of a flash mob robbery over the weekend.

Mantas was working at her convenience store gas station on Washington Street early Sunday morning when about 25 teenagers suddenly came in at once just after midnight.

They started grabbing drinks, candy, ice cream and anything they could get their hands on. Then, in less than a minute, they all left at once–without paying for anything.


“I just want their parents to know, if they know, what the kids did that night.  Do they know?  It’s sad to see this happening at that age.  They were teenagers, 14, 15 years old, 16 maximum,” she told WBZ-TV Tuesday.
