    Details:

    Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the McDonald's located at 4650 McIntosh Road at approximately 3:17 a.m.

    Three armed black males entered the McDonald's, one male jumped over the counter and ran to the back of the restaurant while the other two stayed in the front of the restaurant. The males ordered the 4 employees to the floor. When the manager didn't move fast enough, one of the suspects grabbed her by the neck and shoved her against the drive-thru window. (That employee was later transported to the Hospital complaining of injury). According to witnesses, all of the suspects were wearing blue plastic gloves. After the robbery, the suspects fled in a silver Nissan Altima.

    A deputy in route to another call observed the Nissan Altima at Sydney Road and Dover Road. A Lieutenant was able to follow the vehicle (no pursuit) to the area of Alexander Street East in Plant City where the vehicle crashed (minor). All three suspects bailed from the vehicle. The Lieutenant was able to apprehend one of the suspects (Jakeem Washington) near the vehicle. A second suspect (Bryant Dexter) was apprehended by a K-9 unit hiding behind a fence. As the K-9 Teton affected the apprehension, a semi-automatic pistol was observed laying underneath the suspect.

    Deputies recovered cash and firearms within the suspect vehicle.

    The third suspect is still at large.
