A 93-year-old Enfield woman was attacked and her jewelry was stolen when a man broke into her house on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Enfield police arrested Toby A. Berthiaume, 47, in connection with the robbery and he appeared in court on Friday.

Berthiaume, of 116 Windsor Street in Enfield, was charged with home invasion, first-degree burglary, third-degree assault and fourth-degree larceny, according to police.

His parents were emotional, both inside and outside the courtroom, and defended their son.

They said he did not commit the home invasion and is not violent.

Berthiaume was originally held on $1 million bond. In court, it was set at $350,000.

He is due back in court on July 19.
