ORLANDO, Fla. -

Deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying four young men who robbed three teenage girls in east Orlando.

The three girls were driving on East Colonial Drive around 8 p.m. July 4 near the Knight's Library when they pulled up next to a 2004 or 2005 blue Ford Focus on the roadway.

The car was occupied by four unknown black men in their late teens to early twenties, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The teens started flirting with the men in the car and flashed money back and forth. Deputies said the victims took videos of the men with their cellphones as they were driving, yelling back and forth with them.

The teens later realized that the car with the men was following them when they were driving on Lake Pickett Road, so they pulled into a random house, deputies said.

The Sheriff's Office said the men in the car blocked them in the driveway in the 13000 block of Econ Woods Lane, and the front passenger approached the girls with a handgun demanding money and their phones.

The three men were last seen driving toward East Colonial Drive.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
