SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - Lee County detectives released surveillance photos from the armed robbery early Friday morning at the South Fort Myers Waffle House.

Deputies were called to the restaurant located at 9420 Daniels Parkway at 3:14 a.m.  Witnesses say two armed men wearing masks entered the business and ordered everyone to the floor.  The victims were robbed of their belongings, and some were battered, before the suspects fled the business.  No one was seriously injured.
