An intruder got all Spider Man Saturday morning to break into a condo in Marina Del Rey. The suspect rappelled down the side of the luxury high rise building and onto a balcony, and used a crowbar to break into an occupied 15th floor unit, according to KTLA.

The woman inside the apartment saw the suspect "dangling outside yelling at her to let him in."

Since she had no idea who the dude was, she said no. But while she called the cops, he used his crowbar to break in.

Once inside, however, the intruder did not take anything.

He also got away, leaving about 30 feet of rope hanging from the building's roof behind him.

Authorities have not released a description of the daring intruder, and are reviewing surveillance footage to get more information about the crime.
