Paramus Police Department
Rafael Vasquez, 25, of Passaic, was pushed into court in a wheelchair wearing a cast on his arm and an orange prison jumpsuit.
The search was on Tuesday night for two teens visiting from India, who disappeared while on a school trip to New Jersey.
A police officer critically injured in New Jersey is on the road to recovery. The hero from Paramus was shot during a routine traffic stop, and she was cleared Friday to go home.
Police said the nervous suspect approached a teller and demanded cash around 3:30 p.m. Monday and threatened to shoot and kill everyone if his demands weren’t met.
