ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Deputies said they want to find three men responsible for a crime spree in Orange County.

Two victims were robbed in a matter of minutes, and one victim was left in critical condition.

At about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, deputies responded to a call at the Waterview apartments.

Deputies said the robbers demanded items from the victim and then ran away.

As deputies were talking to the victim a car sped through the apartment complex erratically, and when authorities stopped the car, they realized another victim's mother was just trying to rush her son to the hospital.

Deputies said the robbers pistol-whipped and stabbed the man in a different part of the apartment complex before attacking the second victim they had been interviewing.

"They're definitely armed and dangerous. They have guns, they have knives and it's obvious they weren't afraid to use those tonight. So, we're going to do what we can to get them off the street," said Lt. Paul Hopkins of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said they don't have a very good description of the three robbers. Deputies said they're hoping the victim who was stabbed may be able to give them a better description.

The names of the victims were not released.
