LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The search for a man who assaulted a woman in her 80s in a mall parking lot has ended.

According to police, Christopher Helm stopped a woman at Jefferson Mall in November and asked her for a ride.

Helm and his driver then went to the Shell gas station located at Outer Loop and Preston Highway and used the woman's credit card.

Helm is charged with robbery and fraud in the case.

He was also involved in a separate case in Shively.

According to police, Helm was arrested in connection to a break-in and assault on Crums Lane.
