A former Home Depot employee was arrested at the North Seattle store this morning after he  returned to to the store and allegedly threatened former co-workers.

Officers were called to the store in the 11616 block of Aurora Avenue North at 11:15 a.m. for reports of a man armed with a knife. When the man tried to stab a woman working there, she ran and managed to lock herself in a closet, according to police. The man then vandalized the employee break room, according to police spokesman Mark Jamieson.

The 44-year-old man had recently been fired from his position at the store, said Jamieson. The man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault, theft and malicious mischief.
