Man rappels down Marina del Rey high-rise, breaks into condo

April 15, 2012 |  6:47 pm

Police are hoping surveillance video may lead them to a man who rappelled along the side of a Marina del Rey condominium complex into a woman's residence on the 15th floor of a high-rise.

Police say the woman, who lives in the Regatta complex at Maxella Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard, was startled Saturday morning by the sound of knocking at her window.

Authorities said that when she looked, she saw a man dangling outside her window, yelling at her to let him in, authorities said.

Not recognizing the man, she refused and left her marina-facing condo to call the police.

Authorities said the man then pried the windows open with a crowbar and entered. According to police, the man did not take any property before running off.

No description of the suspect has been released.

Detectives are reviewing surveillance video in an effort to identify the intruder.
