WESTPORT — A town man was charged after he caused a disturbance and took money from an elderly woman, police said.

Todd Seligson, 38, of Westport, was charged with third-degree robbery, forth-degree larceny, disorderly conduct and first-degree criminal trespassing.

On Aug. 3, officers were sent to a home just before midnight on a report of a disturbance. Officers found that the suspect — later identified as Seligson — was not allowed in the home. Despite this, police said, he showed up and demanded $100 for outdoor electrical work from the elderly woman living there.

Police said a struggle started when the woman refused to pay Seligson.

“During the struggle ... Seligson removed the wallet form the victi’ms rear pocket by force and took $1,400 from it before leaving the residence,” police said.

Officers found Seligson at his house and he was taken into custody and charged.

Seligson was unable to post the $25,000 bond. He was taken to court on Monday for arraignment, police said.

Court records showed that he was released on a promise to appear following Monday’s arraignment. He is next expected in court on Sept. 10 for his disposition.
