I'm (really) sorry to interrupt but ... Sorry/Excuse me, can I just interrupt for a minute? Sorry, I know you're busy but I just have something quick to run by you.

Knock on the door, or knock on the panel of his cubicle, the say "I am sorry to interrupt. There is an urgent matter I need to bring to your attention."
