Bank security guard stabbed in abdomen at Seattle bank

UPDATE, 4:00 p.m. |  Seattle Police Department officers arrested a stabbing suspect Tuesday afternoon in South King County, according to their online blotter. He was booked into the King County Jail for an assault investigation.

The Associated Press

Police say there was no apparent reason for a man to stab a security guard Tuesday morning at a downtown Seattle Bank of America branch.

Police say the man had inquired about opening an account. He told the teller he would return later to complete the paperwork. As he walked out he stabbed the guard twice in the abdomen without warning.

The 30-year-old guard was taken to Harborview Medical Center with wounds described as non-life-threatening.

The attacker fled.
