A man rappelled down the side of a high-rise building in Marina del Rey and broke into a woman's condo on the19th floor, according to police.

The break-in occurred early Saturday morning at the Regatta complex at Maxella Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard.

The man apparently began yelling for the woman to let him in and forced his way inside the unit using a crowbar.

The woman didn't recognize the man, so she left her condo to call police. By the time police arrived, the burglar was gone. Police said the suspect did not take anything from the home.

Detectives were reviewing surveillance video, hoping it will help them identify the man.
