A man armed with a knife stabbed a Bank of America security guard without warning at 10:41 this morning. The suspect walked into the Bank of America at 1201 Madison Street and inquired about opening an account. The suspect told the teller that he would return later to complete the paperwork. The man walked out of the bank and stabbed the victim/Security Guard twice in the abdomen. The suspect then fled eastbound on Madison Street.
Seattle Fire responded and transported the victim to an area hospital. He sustained two non-life-threatening stab wounds to his abdomen.
The suspect was located and arrested several hours later in South King County and was subsequently booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.
