SEFFNER — Deputies are seeking the public's help in identifying three men wanted in the armed robbery of New China Restaurant.

Three men entered the business, at 775 W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., just after 10:45 p.m. on Saturday — right before the restaurant closed for the day.

The men were in their late teens or early 20s and were caught on the restaurant's surveillance camera. All three were wearing purple.

Anyone with any information about the crime was asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or the Tip Line at 1-800-873-8477. Tips can also be reported anonymously online at
