Wilmington police say a man posing as a Comcast worker robbed an elderly woman of her car and money over the weekend.

Police say the man asked the woman living in the Wawaset Park area of the city if he could check the picture on her television about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. The victim told police that the man said he worked for Comcast, but was not wearing a uniform.

Police say when the woman went into the living room, the man disappeared. The victim then noticed her car keys, money and credit cards were missing from her purse and her 2002 Ford Taurus had been stolen.
