YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST : Ridgefield Park police have issued a sketch of one of the hijackers who took two men captive — one of whom escaped — while hijacking a tractor-trailer.


The driver jumped off the rig,
which was later found dumped next to Overpeck Park in Leonia. He was interviewed by detectives and described the man in the sketch.

Police don’t know where the second victim is.

The 50-foot white trailer apparently belonged to Netherlands-based HEGRON, a cosmetics company. But that could not be confirmed.

It was reported hijacked about 6 p.m. in Ridgefield Park, after which, police said, there were various reported sightings in the area. Leonia police said they found it about four and a half hours later, empty.

Police ask that anyone with information about the incident call Ridgefield Park Police: 201.641.6400.
