    BOSTON - A police investigation is underway at a Roslindale store after a group of people rushed the business and made off with stolen goods. 

    The whole incident was caught on security camera.

    The mob rushed into Alfa Auto Fuel on Washington Street around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, the family that owns the store told FOX25. The family said police responded within minutes and the owners filed a police report.

    FOX25 has blurred the video, as most of the apparent thieves appear to be minors. The entire theft lasted barely 20 seconds.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact police at (617) 343-4560.
