Merriam police are looking for five people who robbed a motel guest early Monday.
Officers responded about 4:30 a.m. to the robbery call in the 6400 block of East Frontage Road. The 45-year-old victim told officers that he had answered his motel room door for a woman he knew as Crystal.

The victim described Crystal as white, about 31 years old, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 115 pounds with brown hair. She wore blue jeans and a white shirt.
