Thurston County sheriff's deputies are seeking a man suspected of committing an assault Monday that left the victim in Capital Medical Center's emergency room with broken bones.

The motive for the assault was a dispute over a woman, Thurston County Sheriff's Lt. Greg Elwin said.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office:

William Robert Bellamy is accused of luring a man to an address in the 9600 block of Old Highway 99 Monday under the pretense of doing some contract work. When the victim arrived, he was knocked to the ground with a punch in the face. Additional punches and kicks left the 52-year-old man with facial fractures and broken bones.

After the assault, Bellamy drove the victim to Capital Medical Center and dropped him off at the emergency room. The victim, who resides in Lacey, was still recovering at the hospital Tuesday.

There is a warrant for Bellamy's arrest on suspicion of second-degree assault. Bellamy's last known address is in Lacey.

Anyone with information on Bellamy's whereabouts is encouraged to call the sheriff's office at 360-786-5500 or 360-704-2740. Callers can also dial 911.
