Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said that a month-long investigation lead to the recent arrests on charges stemming from a kidnapping in North Arlington. Police there received a report of an incident and arrived to find a pickup truck with its windows smashed in the early morning hours of July 1, 2012. A female victim told police that several people in two cars had assaulted her boyfriend and thrown him into one of the vehicles. The woman told police that one of the vehicles was a burgundy Acura, and provided a partial plate number. Police found the car parked outside an apartment building in North Arlington around 10 a.m. that morning and located Jesus Henrique-Marte and his girlfriend, Yulissa Liranzo-Guerrero. The two were brought in for questioning and charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault. Later that afternoon, police identified the occupants of the second vehicle, a white Honda, as Garfield residents Harold Williams and Diana Rodrigues. They were arrested at their Outwater Lane apartment and similarly charged. Bail was set for the two men at $300,000 each and at $200,000 for each of the two women. All of them are still being held at the Bergen County Jail.
