COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police need your help finding a man wanted for questioning after a boy was tied up in a public bathroom.

Investigators with the Specials Victims Unit are looking for this man seen from a security camera. They want to ask the man questions about an assault on an 8-year-old boy in a bathroom at Macy's at Peachtree Mall from earlier this month.

Police says the boy was tied up by a man on a baby changing station inside the bathroom.

Officers say this appears to be a random act, and the boy doesn't know the man who tied him up.
