Ellen Barkin took her frustration with how police responded to an invasion at her New York City home to Twitter.

The actress, 63, told police she saw an invader on her third-floor balcony after exiting her home early Wednesday morning, PEOPLE confirmed with the NYPD on Thursday.

The man, described as being a white male weighing approximately 150 lbs., tried to re-enter by opening the balcony door while Barkin held the door shut.

The perpetrator bolted by jumping from the balcony to an adjoining fire escape and exiting through a courtyard, according to a Public Information Officer.

It is unclear if any property from the Greenwich Village home was taken, although the This Boy’s Life actress said jewelry was moved from its location to near the balcony.

No immediate arrests were made.

The Bronx native reached out to authorities on Twitter, saying that detectives had not been by to investigate later Wednesday morning.

“The first responders were great, here in 70secs! still waiting for the detectives… it’s only been 4 hours,” she tweeted to Detective James Byrne of the NYPD.

She later added, “Did I just hear this right? No detectives here, at all? My heart breaks for another day that will live in infamy but crime is still going on…in my house.”

Barkin has not responded to request for comment.
