Lexington County Sheriff's deputies are looking for several people involved in an armed robbery at a hotel.

The victim told deputies he went to the Motel 6 on Burning Tree Road Friday to meet a woman he knew.  According to the incident report, he told investigators he was awakened by three men and ordered to the floor.  One of the men had a gun.  The victim said he was hit several times in the head while the men restrained him and went through his pockets.

The three men and the woman left the hotel room and the victim said they took his car, a 1999, 4-door black Mercedes. The victim told police is wallet, cell phone and laptops were inside the car.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for a cut on his head.

Deputies say they couldn't find the woman or the man who checked into the hotel room.  The victim claimed he knew the woman for several years, but he didn't know where she lives and only contacted her via cell phone.
