MIDDLESEX COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Police need your help capturing a wanted man after he allegedly attacked his estranged wife outside of their children’s daycare.
The attack happened March 5 and the suspect has not been seen since. The man police are looking for is William Nelson, Jr.
“He threatened me, told me to get in the car if not he would kill me and kill the kids,” said William’s estranged wife Andrea Nelson as band-aids cover her scars.
Andrea says she screamed for help, her kids screaming as well then things became violent.
“He hit me in the face three times with something, I tried macing him,” said Andrea.
Andrea says the hits kept coming from William, as she desperately continued to fight for her life.
“I ended up being able to get free, and me and my children took off,” said Andrea.
William ran to the woods and has not been seen since.
“I have not slept since, I probably sleep 2 hours a night, I am very paranoid I don’t go anywhere by myself. I always wonder, is he going to come after me again and this time kill me before they find him,” said Andrea.
Andrea says William has connections North Carolina and New Jersey but could be anywhere.
If you have any information about where Nelson may be you are desperately asked to call the Middlesex Sheriff’s office hotline at 804-758-5600.
