A Northeast D.C. convenience store that was the target of a "flash mob" robbery in August has been robbed again, police say.

The Shop Express, formerly a 7-Eleven, at 3900 Benning Road NE was robbed early Monday morning, police say.

Police are on the lookout for two suspects who are possibly armed. The suspects are described as black men wearing blue jeans and ski masks.

On Aug. 18, the store was the site of an overnight flash mob robbery, during which 10 people invaded the store and made off with snacks and drinks.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
