Deputies say man attacked, choked woman in elevator

A man was arrest after deputies said he choked a woman inside an elevator at the Fulton County courthouse.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office said Ruben Washington got on the elevator at the same time as the woman.

When the doors closed, she told deputies Washington put her into a chokehold as she screamed for help.

Eventually, deputies said the elevator stopped and two bystanders were able to intervene.

The woman told deputies she didn't know Washington and a motive is still unclear.
