Myrtle Beach police officers are looking for four men involved in an armed robbery.
Officers were called to the Ocean Plaza Motel at 1005 S. Ocean Blvd around 6:30 a.m. Monday.
Three victims told officers that someone knocked on their door at 5 a.m. and said they were Myrtle Beach police.
When the victims opened their door, they said four men forced their way into the room.
One victim was pistol whipped, according to Captain David Knipes.
The men forced the victims to lie on the bed with their faces down, according to the police report.
One of the men took one of the victims into the bathroom to fondle her, according to the report.
Then, the men searched through the room. They stole phones, credit cards, purses, wallets, hair straighteners, jewelery, $220 in cash, alcohol and a GPS unit.
The items they stole are worth more than $3,700.
One of the men also took a victim next door to the Polynesian Resort at knife point.
He forced her to withdraw $200 from an ATM in the lobby.
Once the men left the room, the victims went to another room on the property to borrow a phone and called police.
No arrests have been made.
Police found several items that were stolen in another room on the same property.
