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.

When the woman said no, police said Helm shoved her to the ground, grabbed her purse and took off in a car that had been waiting for him.

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.

Officers said he broke into the home and when he was confronted by the homeowner he hit him on the head with a skillet.
