    You can say it in several ways:

    1) You can ask: "Sliha, ata (at if F.) yahol (yehola if F.) laazor li?
    Excuse me, can you help me?

    2) Another way is to say "Ani Tzarih (Tzriha if F.) ezra"
    I need help.

    Just in case, here is a useful question to ask when talking to a Hebrew Speaker:
    "Ata medaber Anglit?" Do you speak English?


    Sliha- Sorry/ excuse me
    Ata- you (M)
    At- you (F)
    Yahol- can
    Laazor- to help
    li- me
    Tzarih- need
    Ezra- help
    Medaber- speak/ talk
    Anglit- English

    *Remember that verb always changes in Hebrew depending on the gender of the speaker and whether you talk to one person or a group.

    In addition to what Etay wrote:

    Excuse me, can i get help?
    Slicha, efshar le'kabel ezra?
    סליחה, אפשר לקבל עזרה?
