Mission Possible: Marina Del Rey Burglar Rappels Into 15th Floor High-Rise Residence
Mission Impossible / IMDB
A man rappeled from the roof of an 18-story Marina Del Rey-adjacent condo complex with Mission Impossible-like skill over the weekend and broke into a woman's residence as she ran for help, police said.
The strangest part of this caper:
The suspect fled without taking anything.
According to KTLA, the woman awoke to a vision of a man dangling and knocking at her window, asking her to let him in. She fled, of course.
He apparently used a crowbar to get in anyway, but when detectives arrived the discovered that nothing was missing.

They did, however, find about 30 feet of rope hanging off the roof.
