    SEATTLE - Investigators with the Seattle Police Department are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who attacked a security guard at a downtown store. 

    Police said the man was spotted attempting to leave a store without paying for items around 6:15 p.m. on March 12 in the 1400 block of 2nd Avenue. 

    “When a security guard confronted the man, the man then climbed on top of the guard and put his hand around his throat,” Seattle Police said in a blotter post.  

    Police said another employee intervened and pushed the man away. 

    The man then fled the scene, officials said. 

    Anyone with information is asked to call police at 206-684-5544.
